As the capital of the Basque Country region in northern Spain, Bilbao is an interesting part of Spain to visit, both for its architectural masterpiece and atypical flair. Unlike most Spanish tourist spots, Bilbao has an aloof air of extravagance. But its lack of tradition is made up for by an intriguing culture, gastronomy and architecture. Home to the world-famous Bilbao Guggenheim Museum, Bilbao is packed with museums and monuments. In this region of Spain, winter can mean low temperatures here. The best time to visit is in spring or autumn. If you’re visiting during summer, be sure to book your accommodation in advance.
Where to Stay
The city is divided into two distinct areas: the modern district and the Old Town (Casco Vijeo) where the Cathedral is situated. Most hotels are located in the old district, where many churches and museums are within walking distance. The modern district is where high-end chain hotels are concentrated.
