San Sebastian, an Open-Air Contemporary Museum

Created by the sculptor Eduardo Chillida (San Sebastián, 1924-2002) and the architect Luis Peña Ganchegui (Oñati, 1926-San Sebastián 2009), the Peine del Viento (Wind Comb) is the perfect example of beauty in its purest state, a profound dialogue between art and the landscape.

The fusion between the fierceness of the sea and the strength of the iron structures has elevated the natural character of this contemporary art work to a place of meeting and leisure for the locals and tourists.
