chillidalekuVisit to Chillida Leku

"One day I dreamed a utopia: to find a space where my sculptures could rest and people would walk among them as if through a forest"

Visiting Chillida Leku is a unique experience. This museum is the perfect fusion between art and nature, where the sculptures of Eduardo Chillida are integrated into the landscape. As the artist said, the visitor should walk through this space guided by the "aroma" of the works. The OMN2024 organization provides bus transport.
