Outdoor Sculpture
“Beautiful sculpture of Oteiza. Stunning views. The XV Wind Comb (commonly known as Peine del Viento or El Peine del Viento) is a set of sculptures by Eduardo Chillida on an architectural work by the Basque architect Luis Peña Ganchegui.

Theme Park
“Built in 1912, this amusement park still preserves the essence of that period. At the top off Monte Igeldo, you can either go by car or by a lovely old funicular. Low fees apply for access to the park and for each attraction. Among very old and funny games and attractions, do not miss a ride in 'Montaña Suiza' and enjoy spectacular views of dramatic cliffs. Enjoy probably the best views over the bay and the city thus do not forget a camera to immortalise magic moments we're sure you are going to live in this place.”

Restaurant
“High quality local gastronomy and excellent wine cellar. My favorites are "arroz con almejas", rice with clams or just clams in parsley sauce. Grilled meats are excellent too! For the wine, let the sommelier guide you according to the dishes you order, and you can ask him to show the cellar...if you are a wine lover, you will like it! It is located in Igeldo hill, you need to take a cab (10 minutes). In the summer and if the weather is ok, you can ask for a table in the terrace!”
