Perfect pintxos and trailblazing architecture

Curious about the capital of Spain's Basque Country? Book a flight to Bilbao and visit the gorgeous Guggenheim, a landmark of the city. Go for a walk in romantic Doňa Casilda Park and look out over the Nervion river from the Zubizuri bridge. At night, plan a fun evening exploring the city's many tapas and cocktail bars. Bilbao has a very cosy, down-to-earth vibe.

Old markets and trendy metro stations

Bilbao offers a surprising mix of architecture. Admire historic buildings in the old city, such as the Catedral de Santiago and the beautiful indoor market hall at Mercado de la Ribera. The old city also makes for a great lunch spot. Fans of modern architecture will appreciate the futuristic Guggenheim Museum and the modern metro entrances, scattered throughout the city. And don't forget to visit the Al Hondiga cultural centre. Bilbao is not only the ideal destination for a weekend holiday, but also as the starting point for a longer vacation in Spain.

Culinary bites and stylish shops

Bilbao is an excellent shopping destination. The classy Spanish department store El Corte Inglés has a large location on the Gran Via, Bilbao's lively main street. Or spend a few hours browsing the many small shops in the adjacent neighbourhoods of Indautxi and Ensanche. Hungry? Bilbao is the place to sample tapas, or pintxos, as they call them in the Euskadi or the Basque Country. From trendy to traditional: the city is packed with pintxo bars where you can sample delicious Basque snacks accompanied by a good glass of wine.
