What To Expect
The Guggenheim Museum & Frank Gehry
If there is a compulsory stop to visit during your time in Bilbao is this building designed by the acclaimed architect Frank Gehry. It doesn't really matter if you like contemporary art or no as this building offers much more besides paintings and sculptures.
Let your eyes admire the almost impossible shapes and reflections that the museum offers to your eyes from the titanium skin that protects the museum infrastructure.
Enjoy the pieces of art from artists such as Andy Warhol, Anselm Kiefer, Jean-Michel Basquiat and the local Basque sculptors of Eduardo Chillida and Jorge Oteiza.
Learn why the museum was built in first place and the huge impact that has had in the last decades over the Bilbao prosperity.
BILBAO GASTRONOMY - THE OLD TOWN
Discover the history of Bilbao in a relaxed walk around the beautiful colourful Old Town of Bilbao dated from the 13th Century. Learn how Bilbao transformed from being one of the ugliest cities of Spain to be one of the most modern and contemporary cities of Europe.
We will take you to explore the local food market (the biggest covered market in Europe) so you can see the products we use in our day-to-day gastronomy such as the salted cod, the spicy chorizo or the softer calamaris (txipirones).
We will stop to in a couple of bars for some local drinks and pintxos in "Plaza Nueva" where we will have lunch and explain you all about our language, The Basque, known to be pre roman and pre-latin and possibly the most important asset that the Basques have nowadays.
the nervion river
The sound of the Nervion river will guide us to the Funicular of Artxanda. Along the river we will be delighted with architectural pieces such as the the impressive "Spider" of Louise Bourgeois, the "Puppy" of Jeff Koons or the stunning "Zubizuri" bridge designed by Calatrava
