I visited San Sebastian in February and walked along the beach from the town centre to this land mark. It is interesting to see how ocean meets the iron piece of landmark. Amazing scenery.

MMy trip here was not planned. I was just running along the beach, came to a dead end and saw this place. Interestingly I think this place is very good to visit when the weather is not good. Rough ocean and windy weather will make this visit memorable. I was totally drenched standing there and it was fun

A good reason to walk the length the beaches to see these. What a great idea to put them there. The blow-holes in the grounds nearby are amusing too.

I love Spain and this steel art work is one of the reasons. Fantastic. It is only a short walk along La Concha beach and is well worth it you wont be disappointed

Combs of the wind is at the end of the boardwalk on one side of the lovely Concha beach in Donostia. We made a longer walk along the beaches. From the old town it is around 50 minutes walk. Go there - it looks fantastic even if the weather is not so good. The air blows up from canals connected... More

These sculptures were fabulous .. Especially on the windy day we had, as the ocean waves splashing through were incredible.

If you visit SanSe you will at some point have a stroll at the concha. It is a must to go all the way to "Peines del Viento" to experience breathtaking views and the fury of the Ocean.

I went there in a sunny day with a very quiet sea. Maybe that made my visit not so impressive. A 30 min walk from the center, I think it is worth to see as it is one of the POI in town but dont expect too much.
