Portugalete and Getxo with Bizkaia Suspension Bridge (Bilbao - Spain)

What to do in Bilbao


Bilbao is one of the most interesting cities in the Basque Country. It offers a wide variety of entertainment and overwhelming vitality, especially since 1997, when the Guggenheim Museum was inaugurated. This meant a real change for the city, as it increased the flow of tourists at a level never seen before.

In addition to this emblematic museum, Bilbao stands out for its old town, which is home to more than 700 years of heritage and history. This makes it one of the most spectacular and visited cultural centres in Spain.

In addition to the historical and cultural Bilbao, there is a gastronomic and commercial Bilbao full of spectacular restaurants, shops where visitors and tourists can buy excellent quality products or souvenirs, and a thriving nightlife that feeds on its busy pubs, bars and nightclubs.

There is also a pleasant combination of all these wonderful options. In places like the Mercado de la Ribera, tourists can taste an exquisite selection of pintxos and Txakoli wine.

Bilbao is brimming with parks and green areas, so tourists can choose from a variety of options, whether it is going up the beautiful Artxanda funicular or navigating the Nervión estuary aboard a boat that will take one to the spectacular Portugalete Hanging Bridge. Those who prefer to do so can also practice rowing or paddle surfing.
