Your trip to Bilbao starts from the Casco Viejo, the beating heart of the city: stroll through its streets until you reach the Cathedral square - famous for being one of the stops for pilgrims on the Camino de Santiago - and the Mercado de la Ribera, the largest covered market in Europe. Discover the modern face of Bilbao among the buildings that dot the Gran Vía before admiring the particular structure of the Guggenheim Museum, that houses works by artists such as Andy Warhol and Keith Haring. For an unforgettable view, take the Artxanda funicular, which from the top of its 250 meters will offer you an exceptional view, to say the least.

Bilbao

Between Iberian traditions and new artistic forms

Modern, lively and captivating: this is Bilbao, a city of a thousand forms. In fact, Bilbao retains its ancient heart made of distant perfumes and traditions, but has successfully welcomed the artistic and cultural innovations of the last century to create a splendid diamond with infinite facets. Visit the iconic Guggenheim Museum, the imposing structure made of glass and titanium, and stroll through the streets of the historic Casco Viejo District while enjoying a delicious pintxos, small delicacies symbolic of this magical city.

  • Visit the Guggenheim Museum
  • Don't miss the historic Casco Viejo
