Tour a German artist's unusual outdoor workshop
Known to local's simply as "El Alemán" or the German, Manfred Gnadinger, moved to this coastal village in Northwestern Spain, put on a loincloth and began creating his own personal sanctuary right on the coast. He lived in a small cement shack, and built his unusual sculptures around his home out of mortar and rock. After a particularly bad storm and shipwreck, most of his sculptures turned black from the pollution, and locals say that he died of a broken heart.
