Visit the Peine del Viento sculpture in San Sebastian, the symbol of the City.
A Visit to San Sebastian would seem fruitless without a visit to its iconic sea staues, the Peine del Viento sculpture (wind comb).
Found just below the Monte Igueldo the famous work’s of Basque sculptor and artist Eduardo Chillida and architect Luis Peña Ganchegui Can be found.
The sculptures are made from large iron work shapes anchored down by pink granite, and is spread across three nearby sites in the San Sebastian area. We think its certainly worth a look.
