The Painted Forest of Oma - Kortezubi, Basque Country, Spain

The Painted Forest of Oma is the creation of Basque painter and sculptor Agustin Ibarrola and is nestled in the Valley of Oma, close to Kortezubi in Basque Country, Spain. Ibarrola created this magical, colourful space in the 1980s as an open-air art installation. This is not just colourful daubs of paint – as you move through the forest, you discover that the paintings on the trees line up and become animals and geometric forms or people.
