Discover cultural Bilbao
Visit the famous Guggenheim Museum and dine on delectable Basque cuisine in Bilbao.
Once upon a time, Bilbao was an industrial powerhouse with little to offer in the way of looks. These days, courtesy of the stunning Guggenheim Museum - this thriving city in Spain’s Basque Country has transformed into a hub for European art.
The gleaming Guggenheim is perhaps Bilbao’s finest asset – but a host of art galleries and glorious Gothic architectural gems also contribute to the cultural stock of the Biscay province’s capital. Bilbao is a city of depth and character, where the mammoth modern Guggenheim and shiny shops offering the latest fashions stand alongside medieval monuments. On the Nervión River’s east bank, Bilbao’s beautiful Old Town, or ‘Casco Viejo’ is a collection of quaint shopping streets lined with quirky boutiques and bustling bars. Then of course, there is the world-renowned Basque cuisine – waiting to be sampled at critically-acclaimed culinary hotspots.
