Street art

Sopela is not just beaches and spectacular cliffs. Its streets have surprises in the form of sculptures for travelers.

Different sculptures of contemporary art are located in various corners of the municipality. At the Iberre bridge we meet a strange tin surfer. Next to the town hall, it houses a bronze figure skater and near the town hall there is also one of the few statues dedicated to Angus Young, ACDC guitarist. In Iturrieta Park, a submerged whale awaits visitors and at the entrance to the swimming pools, the cyclist from Sopeloztar, Joane Somarriba, has her sculpture. On Sipiri and Betantxu streets, a propeller and an anchor serve as a tribute to the shipbuilding industry.
