Tour description

In Donostia there are many Works of Art whether in its museums, in its art galleries, in its churches or in the urban architecture to say nothing of the glorious natural surroundings . I want to show the world all the amazing things we have and thus allowing the traveller to enjoy an aesthetically pleasing visit to Donosti: The walk provides the possibility of stopping in interesting places where you can taste Donosti´s local cuisine. The tour includes: 1st "Herri txistu otza", by Remigio Mendiburu 2nd "The Dove of Peace", by Néstor Basterretxea 3º "Empty Construction", by Jorge de Oteiza 4th Homage to Fleming, by Eduardo Chillida 5th "Zeharki" (Through), by José Ramón Anda 6º "The Comb of the Wind", by Eduardo Chillida 7th "Besarkada" ( The hug), by Eduardo Chillida. Tribute to Rafael Ruiz Balerdi. Group members will be encouraged to take pictures. Photos will be chosen to expand the corpus of blog images, citing the author´s first and last name, and their origin subject to the approval of the photographer. I have used some of the photos of the sculptures mentioned, including "Proa", by Ricardo Ugarte, as part of an exhibition at the Naval Museum (Untzi Museoa) in Donostia, and Txori, by Remigio Mendiburu, located in El Puntal de Hondarribia.
Depending of the visitor´s time the visit could be longer or shorter

Ramuntcho is a good person, who really wants to help. His low English level though, makes the tour practically inexistent.
