Description

The 1990 Elogio del Horizonte (‘In Praise of the Horizon’) is a bold, sea-facing concrete sculpture by Basque artist Eduardo Chillida that has become a symbol of the city. Standing in the grassy Parque del Cerro de Santa Catalina, at the top of Cimadevilla (the ancient core of Gijón), it was designed to be admired from the inside.
