The economic capital of the Basque Country is today a vibrant, modern city of arts, which has its roots in a past blended of a former industrial glory and the proud Basque heritage. There are so many things to do, see and try here that it’s hard not become crazy.

All of these works are under the shining shadow of the incredible Guggenheim Museum, designed by Frank Gehry with a metallic, futuristic and reflective architecture in the shape of a ship, venue to house contemporary works by artists such as Andy Warhol, Richard Serra and Mark Rothko.

Visit the church of San Vicente de Abando, an example of 16th century Basque Gothic style. or the beautiful Abando train station, known for its great wall of stained glass with images of the city’s attractions and various aspects of Basque culture.

On the other side of the Nervión river, let yourself be fascinated by the beautiful Arriaga Theater, inspired by the Paris Opera, inaugurated in 1890 and named for the Bilbao musician Juan Crisóstomo Arriaga, a child prodigy not unlike Mozart.

Keeping your head up, you will be able to observe in detail the Gothic cathedral of Santiago, dedicated to the revered Apostle.
