Best things to do and see in Bilbao

A port city in and capital of the Basque region, Bilbao is a thriving hub for art, design and architecture. The Guggenheim Museum is perhaps the most prominent and spectacular building in the city and houses a wealth of famous artworks. Many of the larger pieces in the collection are to be found in the ‘Art District’ outside, which is definitely worth a stroll around, if only to take in the museum itself. Bilbao’s old town is filled with narrow, colourful and winding streets just waiting to be explored. It’s also where you’ll find the magnificent Catedral de Santiago de Bilbao, as well as an array of unique shops and Pintxo bars offering a real taste of Basque cuisine. One of the most popular ways to see Bilbao is by boat. You can take a ride down the Ría del Nervión and take in the unique architecture that lines its banks. The cafés and bars at Plaza Nueva are an ideal spot to unwind, grab a coffee and watch the world go by.
