During my previous visit to Dyrön, I caught sight of an intriguing view nearby—a colossal head towering atop a hill. Even though I was curious, I didn’t have enough time to explore it. Hence, this time, I seized the perfect opportunity to finally pay it a visit.
Skulptur i Pilane is a sculpture park that is designed in a way that perfectly blends with the natural landscape, so you can either follow the established paths or wander freely through the meadows and hills. Either way, you’re sure to have a great time! From the elevated vantage points, you can bask in the breathtaking panorama of the West Sea and the Bohuslän archipelago. Among the park’s expansive collection, one of the most magnificent sculptures is “Anna” by Jaume Plensa, which has transcended into a symbol of the entire West Coast and now permanently resides in Pilane.
Having said that, I found numerous other artworks equally fascinating and captivating, making my wanderings through the sculpture park all the more enjoyable, especially as someone who typically approaches art with skepticism.
Interestingly, in 2016, The Guardian, a prominent British newspaper, recognized Sculpture in Pilane as one of Europe’s top ten sculpture parks, cementing its status as a must-see destination.
