Bilbao - Spain

Widely known for Flamenco music, dance, bull-fights, fantastic beaches and lots of sunshine, Spain has to offer much more than that. It is - and has been for thousands of years - one of the cultural centres of Europe. It has beautiful cities and towns, offering really old monuments as well as futuristic architecture. Its various regions are all different one to each other, geographically, climatically and even in personality.

With its industrial and seaside satellites, Bilbao extends along the banks of the Nervion River. The city is the largest in the Basque region, an unbroken metropolis hemmed-in by steep hills. For many, Bilbao is synonymous with its spectacular Guggenheim Museum which opened in 1997 signalling the dawn of a new era for this heavily industrialised city which previously held little interest for the international traveller.

These days thousands of visitors flock to the city with the sole purpose of seeing the Guggenheim which, in the view of many, has as much artistic merit as the many masterpieces housed within it.

Bilbao Airport is located 12Km North of Bilbao with good access to the motorways to travel West towards Cantabria, South towards La Rioja or East towards San Sebastian and France.
