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.

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.

This is the perfect way to experience the monumental art of Eduardo Chillida. This garden is reached easily by bus from San Sebastian and worth the effort to visit. You may encounter Chillida's sculptures in many cities of the world but to see many of them at together in this country garden setting is to glimpse the vision of this... More

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.

Our wonderful hosts at the Pension Bellas Artes told my wife and I needed to pay a visit to the Chillida museum. This was emphasized even more by the the fact that apparently they were closing at the end of 2010. Personally I am not a huge fan of most forms of modern art, but I found the Chillida museum...

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, although they do want San Sebastian to be City of Culture in 2016. You do... More
