These interesting sculptures make for some good photos if you are a keen photographer. We went on a Sunday morning and although it was busy I was able to get some good images of the "Combs"with the waves as a backdrop. Worth a visit if you are in the area.

When we visited the waters were very strong. the waves crashing against the rocks were great to look at. The roar of the sea was incredible.

Was here in September in 2010. It's worth walking round to. The 2D pictures can't do it justice. Funky with its little blowholes and rusted shapes grabbing at the air and water. Feed your memory banks ...

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
