Taste of Pintxos and Culture
Capital of the Biscay province in the Basque Country, the ever-fascinating Bilbao is a vibrant city experiencing constant growth and architectural revitalisation. Don’t miss out on being an eye-witness!
The stunning Guggenheim Museum is an absolute must-see. Designed by famous Frank Gehry, its curvaceous walls hide fascinating gems of modern art. If you enjoy museums, pay a visit to Museo de Bellas Artes with over 6,000 works dating back to the 12th century.
Bilbao has great shopping in the popular area of Plaza Moyua and Gran Via and while you’re at it, make sure to check out the Mercado de la Ribera with fresh, local produce, fish and meat.
Bilbao is the capital of pintxos, the local version of tapas, which is often fancier than its Spanish cousin as Basque people are famous for their love of elaborate cuisine. For more thrills, try patxaran and sagardo - unforgettable drinks, the taste of which will stay with you for even longer!
