BILBAO CITY TOUR
Following its industrial past, Bilbao is today a cosmopolitan city thanks to the aesthetic and social revitalization process it underwent after the construction of the Guggenheim Museum in 1997 by the world-renowned Canadian architect Frank Gehry.
Before discovering Bilbao, we will visit the famous Transporter Bridge of Portugalete (Vizcaya Bridge), one of the most important constructions of the Industrial Revolution, which was declared an UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2006.
In Bilbao, we will walk along the path of the Nervion River into the city’s ancient old quarter to witness the urban transformation and regeneration brought about by the investment in numerous infrastructure projects like the Euskalduna Conference Centre and Concert Hall, the Boulevard of Abandoibarra, and the Guggenheim Museum itself.
To conclude our tour, we will stroll through the “seven streets” of Bilbao’s historical old quarter to explore its plazas, churches, ancient local shops, and the largest indoor market of Europe: The Ribera Market.
