Nice walk or even you can go by car if you are lazy. Great collection of different artists in an environment as good as the collection. Worth the visit!!

We walked form Sardinero to the Light House passing lovely beaches, crashing waves, amazing vistas. The light house houses a small museum with an interesting permanent collection as well as space for temporary installations. An afternoon well spent!
