“Very Nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

It is definitely a nice place for a few pictures. It's nice to see the combination of sculpture and nature. A short walk from Playa La Concha.

“worth a walk.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

An example of art and public places combined. Worth a walk to enjoy the view the art and the plaza and the story they tell. Great views of the city but that is true from anywhere on the bay.

“enjoyed it very much!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

the combination of the sculpture, the waves hitting the rocks, the sound of the wind, the surfers practising on the way, the air coming from the subsurface, the kids playing around, the tourists getting wet while taking pics... amazing sunset there!

“Great fun on a windy day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

Take the kids (or yourself ) down here on a windy day to find out why they are really called the blow holes!
