CHILLIDA-LEKU is an outdoors museum that gathers the work of Eduardo Chillida (San Sebastián 1924-2002) in the properties of “Zabalaga farmhouse”, constructed in 1594 at the town of Hernani (Guipúzcoa-Spain). 10 kilometers far from San Sebastián, 40 sculptures of great format stand out on the ground of 12 hectares and a hundred small format works and drawings, created during 50 years of work, appear inside the restored farmhouse. In the same town in 1951, after his brief Parisian experience, Eduardo Chillida began his works in the forge of a blacksmith.

The sculptures and other art are set in gloriuos natural surroundings and inside a carefully-restored and prepared building. This is a great place to visit--if you can. I visited as part of an organized group--I am not sure it is open to the general public.

Beautiful location, beautiful art, beautiful building. You have to book ahead. I just emailed the evening before and they responded right away. 15 euro donation, well worth it.

This is probably not the first place people think of to visit when they go to San Sebastian: It is out of the way and there is no gourmet food or beaches involved. But as someone who had never seen Chillida's art before, it was...More

We had the place to ourselves and what a treat. The grounds the studio, the artwork were all amazing. I believe you have to still email the foundation to get access to see the grounds and studio. Worth the extra effort.

Went here years ago now, but have been thinking of it again recently. Chillida's work is superb and the museum was really well laid out. Really worth the trip.

We loved San Sebastian, but we found it a cultural desert, at least as far as art and galleries and museums were concerned. This beautiful place and art refreshed us like an oasis. It seems that the Basque government does not wish to support it,...More
