Bilbao is the largest and most cosmopolitan city of the Basque Country. Bilbao has become synonymous with the contemporary Guggenheim Museum, dazzles with its innovative modern architecture. The museum designed by Frank Gehry stands for traditional Basque culture and its openness to embrace all things modern.
While the museum represents modern Bilbao, the Casco Viejo of Bilbao (the seven streets), part of the old medieval town, is still the heart of the city. The old city is famous for its taverns offering tasty pintxos.
The other truly remarkable attraction at Bilbao is the beautiful metro system designed by architect Sir Norman Foster. Uniqueness about the metro stems from the rounded glass structures called “fosteritos,”. Ride the metro to Puente Colgante (“hanging bridge”), an Unesco World Heritage Site.
