Top Bilbao Attractions

Bilbao is the capital of the province of Biscay, in the autonomous community of the Basque Country. It is the tenth largest city in Spain.

Bilbao is situated in the north-central part of Spain, some 14 Km (8.7 mi) south of the Bay of Biscay, where the estuary of Bilbao is formed.

Since its foundation in the early 14th century, Bilbao was a commercial hub that enjoyed significant importance in the Green Spain, mainly thanks to its port activity based on the export of iron extracted from the Biscayan quarries. Throughout the 19th century and beginnings of the 20th, Bilbao experienced heavy industrialization that made it the centre of the second industrialized region of Spain, behind Barcelona.

GUGGENHEIM MUSEUM

The Guggenheim Museum is a museum of modern and contemporary art, designed by the architect Frank Gehry. It is built alongside the Nervion River, which runs through the city of Bilbao. The museum features permanent and visiting exhibits of works by Spanish and international artists.

It was the building most frequently named as one of the most important works completed since 1980 in the 2010 World Architecture Survey among architecture experts. When it was opened to the public in 1997, it was immediately hailed as one of the world's most spectacular buildings in the style of Deconstructivism.
