Treasure Island

On Santa Clara Island, the work by Cristina Iglesias excavated inside the emptied lighthouse, aims to turn an iconic place in San Sebastián into a place for reflection and communication with the city and the sea.

Inspired by the wild nature of the island and the rock forms on the Basque coast the sculptor Cristina Iglesias has created a work that transforms the interior of the Lighthouse, by restoring and turning it into a breathtaking sculpture. The geological layers cast like a bronze underwater cliff and the sequences of seawater that flows into it, carry visitors away to a primeval world, in intimate communion with nature. This is an aesthetic experience that begins right from the very moment that we get on the boat in the port to head for the island.
