Eduardo Chillida, who passed away in 2002, left future generations with a gift or the senses. A 16th century homestead and its green estate make up Chillida-Leku, a magic area in which the works of the San Sebastian sculptor seem to breathe.
Chillida spent his final years creating an area in line with his work, where it would be permanently on display. In the gardens of the Zabalaga homestead, between beech trees, oaks and magnolias, he set out forty works, some of particularly large size, mostly in granite or iron, corresponding to different stages of his half a century of creation. Inside the house, now refurbished and emptied out, we find the small size sculptures and the engravings. Teaching programmes, leisure activities and concerts often round off the unforgettable visit to Chillida-Leku Museum, located very close to the Hernani forge where Eduardo Chillida began work following his experience in Paris.
