We visited the park Miramar

 We also visited the park Miramar. The set of Miramar, composed of a palace with its park, and various buildings, gardens and outbuildings, covering, in total, an area of 34,136 meters square, bounded in the north, the gardens of Ondarreta, the rocks and the sea. Here we are with the English style palace.
Here is Ondarreta beach from the park
and here we are with the so-called Pico el Loro ( "parrot beak" ) The point where they meet the beaches of La Concha and Ondarreta, a unique place to see the tidal forces as it depends on the time of day, then this serves enclave between the two most famous beaches and the bay.

We visit the Comb of the Wind

en route to the sculptures we can see the island of Santa Clara more closely. When the tide is very low you can go walking to it by those stones! But that happens very rarely
Here we come at last to the comb of the winds!
 The Comb of the Wind is one of the best known works of sculptor Eduardo Chillida and one of the most famous in the city. The whole work consists of three steel sculptures curved. They are embedded in rocks and in direct contact with the sea in an area that the waves and the wind hit hard. The twisted comb some see in the sculptures along with the wind whipping the area usually give the name to the work.

 We found That One of them is fenced by temporary landslides...
 there are many waves!
 Alongside the work of Chillida was conditioned area with an underground tunnel through which water enters hard when high tide is raging and ejects jets of water into the sky through holes provided for such purpose, creating a very characteristic sound, what makes Chillida's work not only for visual appeal but even older children have enjoyed it.
