In addition, Bilbao is in a privileged location, because you can enjoy both the mountains and the sea and the picturesque villages.

The city

Bilbao is the heart of a metropolis with a population of more than a million people. It is the driving force of social and economic development and it is the main factor behind the modernization of the Gulf of Biscay. Ambitious architectural, and general infrastructure projects, have fueled the urban and financial regeneration of the city. The Guggenheim Museum; the Euskalduna Concert Hall and Convention Center; the underground, built by Norman Foster; the airport, built by Calatrava; the new tram and projects by architects such as Arata Isozaki and Cesar Pelli are all examples of the overwhelming vitality that passes through Bilbao. Situated in the Territory of Bizkaia, the city is surrounded by fertile landscapes, with forests, mountains, beaches, and steep coasts, that make Bilbao an excellent destination for any traveller. The modern network of transport and roads makes the nearby Basque capitals like Vitoria and San Sebastian much more accessible.
