Studio and collection of the sculptor from Zumaia, Julio Beobide.

This museum is housed within a villa called Kresala, named after the Zumaia sculptor who had his workshop here. Born in 1891, Julio Beobide, who was a close personal friend of Ignacio Zuloaga, dedicated a large part of his work to making religious sculptures and realistic portrayals of everyday life.

The museum has several sketches and pieces made from a variety of materials, mainly wood, that include an unfinished sculpture of Jesus Christ. Also on show are the tools the artist used to create his work.

It is possible to visit the museum by previous appointment. Tel. 659.268.798
