Grand architectural projects have filled this Basque city with life in recent times. Thanks to such projects and to its people, Bilbao today is a vibrant, dynamic city.
The city offers a vast range of cultural attractions, with the Guggenheim Museum as its most famous ambassador. As well as its awe-inspiring structure and use of materials, it is also home to a major art collection.
Whilst on the subject of art, we cannot overlook the Basque Country's fabulous gastronomy. Good eating is almost a way of life. As well as the traditional "pintxo"-style tapas combining tastes to suit all palates, Basque cuisine is also renowned for its succulent fish dishes.
