Bilbao

 

Bilbao is located on the northeastern coast of Spain, in Basque Country.

While it is a historic city, it has become best known in recent years for architect Frank Gehry’s spectacular twisting titanium-clad modern art museum — perhaps the most celebrated building of the 1990s.

Bilbao is filled with historical landmarks, including churches, parks, and many museums.

Near the city is the Vizcaya Bridge, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the first bridge in the world to carry people and traffic on a high suspended gondola. With its innovative use of lightweight twisted steel cables, it is regarded as one of the outstanding architectural iron constructions of the Industrial Revolution.

Overall Atmosphere: Cultural
A Cultural Atmosphere includes both the historic (eg, landmark town centers) and the contemporary (music, nightlife, etc).

Cultural Interests tend to be:
(a) indoors-oriented, and therefore not as linked to weather conditions for enjoyment
(b) relatively physically accessible, while also not being physically demanding.
Featuring mainly indoors-oriented historical or contemporary attractions.
