Bilbao, a destination in the Basque Country, has earned the nickname “The City of the Guggenheim.”

The museum’s construction in 1997 brought about a significant change in the city that continues today. The museum’s modern, groundbreaking structures, designed by renowned architects, have made it an international symbol of modernity. Yet, what makes Bilbao unique is the perfect blend of avant-garde and traditional elements. Its charming old town streets and bars offer pintxos, a testament to the locals’ passion for gastronomy. It’s no wonder Bilbao has earned a well-deserved spot on Spain’s list of most fascinating cities.
