Bilbao is one of Spain best cities to visit in Spain. Home of Basque Country and also a big culture Hub. Frank Gehry`s Guggenheim Museum is a must see attraction. Food is awesome here.

Bilbao is the main city in basque country, Spain. It is great how an industrial city totally reinvented itself after the creation of a new museum. There's for sure a before and after Guggenheim Bilbao. The city has an animated cultural life, between The main museums, or art neighborhoods or the old town / Casco Viejo! Food is fabulous.It's not a beautiful city at first sight, but the more you get to know the more you enjoy it.

Bilbao is a lively, beautiful cosmopolitan city with an excellent airport. The architecture and downtown area along the river are spectacular, with old and new bridges intermingling with beautiful lines and shadows. We were there on a National holiday and all the stores were closed, but the bars and museums were wonderful. Excellent walking city.

I was actually here for a week working and while I love Spain, I'm not crazy about Bilbao. It doesn't have the beauty of Madrid or Barcelona BUT it does have the Guggenheim. That is the main reason to go. The boardwalk has many elegant cafes and some great restaurants.
