Explore Bilbao's dynamic blend of industrial history and contemporary art. From Guggenheim's iconic sculptures to Gothic wonders, a time-travel adventure awaits in this vibrant Basque city.
The capital of the Basque Country is today a modern and vibrant artistic city, but it’s roots are seated upon its former industrial glory and its proud Basque heritage. There are so many things to do, see and try out here that it is easy to get lost. Visit the Art District and see the Puppy Statue of Jeff Koons, the giant spider Mamen made by Louise Bourgeois and the Tall Tree and the Eye, both from Anish Kapoor. All of them are under the shiny shade of the incredible Guggenheim Museum, designed by Frank Gehry in a metal, futuristic and reflective ship-like architecture, to house contemporary works of artists like Andy Warhol, Richard Serra and Mark Rothko.See the Church of San Vicente de Abando, an example of sixteenth century Basque Gothic architecture. Have a look at the beautiful Abando Rail Station, known for its great wall of stained glass with images of city attractions and various aspects of Basque culture. Across the river Nervión, be fascinated by the beautiful Arriaga Theater, inspired by the Opera of Paris, and it opened in 1890 and named after the Bilbao born musician Juan Crisóstomo Arriaga, a child prodigy not very different from Mozart. Pass the Plaza Barria and step into Casco Viejo, the old town of Bilbao and see the egyptian-styled Fountain of the Dogs.
