Bilbao is the largest city in the Basque Country and commands an important postion on the bay of Biscay. An ambitious urban renewal plan, this industrial city is making an attempt to change that legacy.
The controversial Museo Guggenheim de Arte Contemporaneo is the centerpiece of the city’s renewal plan. The Casco Viejo, or Old Quarter, contains what is left of the city’s 700-year heritage. This area contains several important churches including the Inglesia de San Nicolas, the Basilica de Begona and the Catedral de Santiago. The Casco Viejo also contains numerous bars and restaurants.
The Basque Country around Bilbao can be easily explored by rental car. This area is naturally beautiful and contains smaller villages that are delightful and interesting.
