This is an interesting open space situated between the apse of San Telmo church, the Church of Santa Maria, Mount Urgull and 31 de Agosto street. It is located on one of the oldest sites in the city, and houses the local pelote field (Jai Alai ball sport), and is often used for festivals, sports and concerts. The new space was created to coincide with the hundredth anniversary of the demolition of the city walls and was the beginning of a series of works by the architect for public areas, such as the square of Peine del Viento. "The project shows a collection of partial solutions from unions and meetings that seem to be there earlier as a natural and logical evolution of what they called this place." The mountain ending in a stone tribune and the wall of the sporting field provide a natural link between the buildings that surround the square. The new extension of neighbouring San Telmo museum will connect to the square too.
