Bilbao is the biggest city of the Spanish region Basque Country. The Spanish city has undergone a transformation in the past few years. Bilbao used to be an industrial city and now it is one of the most popular destinations for city trips in Spain!
Sightseeing in Bilbao
There is no lack of art and culture in Bilbao. From the beautiful Cathedral Santiago and the special Zubizuri bridge, to the number one sight in Bilbao: The Guggenheim Museum.
The Guggenheim Museum has contributed a lot to the transformation of the city. The building itself is already a piece of art. It is covered with titanium plates, which sparkle in the sunlight. The Guggenheim Museum is one of the most important museums of modern art. Inside of the museum there are twenty galleries, divided over 10.560 squared meters. An absolute must-see for art, culture and architecture lovers!
Another remarkable sight is the Puppy. This is a 12 meter high statue covered with 70.000 flowers. This striking piece of art is in the shape of, you guessed it, a puppy!
Food and drinks in Bilbao
Even though the Guggenheim attracts a huge amount of visitors, food and drinks in Bilbao cannot be forgotten. Small bites called Pintxos are typical in this area. This Basque tapas can be ordered in several local restaurants (Sidrerias) in the beautiful old town of Bilbao. Apart from that they also serve local wines called Chacoli or Txakoli here. Delicious!
