The Combs of Winds, also known as the Peine Del Viento was a master piece created by great sculptor Eduardo Chillida and famous architect Luis Pena Ganchegui. The theme is a conversation between nature and landscape. This pure form of beauty is a visual treat. The creation is where the fierce nature of the sea is interrupted by the strength of the metal used in this formation. The most notable part is the diplomatic thought behind this. The spot is now a favorite for tourists and locals alike.

Combs Of The Winds Reviews & Ratings
This is a beautiful area where you can enjoy playing with the waves. Highly recommended if you have kids as it's pretty safe and they will definitely have fun with the wave holes and the sprays. Very good parking located nearby. For a windy day make sure you're fully waterproof!
Nice easy beautiful walk around the bay. A great place to eat a picnic lunch and watch the waves come in. Have fun standing on top of the air holes and be surprised at the power of the sea. Also fun watching others expressions of surprise the first time the air blows on them.
I lived the rock formations. It was really interesting. The man made sculptures in the rock were also nice. Nice view of the city and islands as well.
A great Chillida sculpture that became one of Donostia main landmarks. Worth the walk from the city centre
It was definitely one of our favorite places to see. This is, of course, a must-see! The man at the home we were staying at told us that this was also one of their most important attractions. There is a cafe/restaurant near by, if you want a quick bite or just to relax and enjoy a meal. I have not eaten at this restaurant. From this angle you can also see the la concha beach from a different view, which was also beautiful. The waves of the ocean crashes against the rocks and makes it really nice to even just sit there for a while and enjoy the view. I recommend going in hightide, as there are some holes in the ground in which the oceans hard pressure waves escapes through.
