One day in Bilbao

the undisputed urban giant
The undisputed urban giant of the Basque territories, Bilbao is a smart, innovative, lively city, which has emerged from a difficult past with a strong identity. Long gone are the days when Bilbao was perceived as industrial and boring. Years of trade and immigration laid the groundwork for a modern city whose arrival was sealed with the plunking down of the Guggenheim Museum in 1997. From that moment, Bilbao shook off the factory dust, cleaned up its act, and began to equate art not with frivolity but with the potential to transform the city. Bilbao continues to be a buzzing, multicultural capital, anxious to try new things yet still fiercely clinging to its Basque traditions.

Itinerary

Artxanda viewpoint and funicular

The whole of Bilbao sprawls out below you from where we will enjoy the best panorama out over the city and the mountain backdrops. This is the ideal place to learn about the city’s long history before we head down to the Old Town on a funicular opened in 1915 (tickets included).

A walk along the Nervion river

A walk along the river to the Old Town will take us along the city centre section of the Nervion River, through what was previously the heart of some of Bilbao’s heavy industry, allowing us to get a feel for the incredible reinvention of the city.

Around the Old Town

Bilbao’s Old Town, with tall, narrow lanes lined with thriving shops and tapas bars is a must. We will visit  the most important sights, including the original «Seven Streets» (Zazpi Kaleak) that once made up Bilbao, La Ribera Market, the cathedral of Santiago or Plaza Nueva, where we can have lunch (not included) in one of the many  establishments piled high with plates of mouthwatering pintxos.

Guggenheim museum

So much has been written about the unique building that single-handedly put Bilbao on the tourist map. Turned into the symbol of the new Bilbao, Guggenheim Bilbao Museum presents one of the most ambitious cultural projects of the century. Even if you are not turned on by contemporary art, the Guggenheim is a must see experience. Explore the museum by yourself (entrance not included) to enjoy its 20 galleries and to appreciate the museum’s structural design, which is a masteriece in itself.
