This Basque city represents urban, social and cultural evolution in the 21st century. An incredible list of internationally-renowned architects carried out stunning projects in Bilbao: Frank O. Gehry, Norman Foster, Santiago Calatrava, Zaha Hadid, Cesar Pelli, Ricardo Legorreta, Arata Isozaki… Bilbao is blooming, cosmopolitan, yet human-sized: no matter where you are, you can always see the mountains at the end of the street.
The Guggenheim Bilbao Museum – which is of course a key part of the visit – is the trademark of this global urban & social regenerative project. This building is a magnificent example of the further reaches of avant-garde architecture. Architect Frank O. Gehry has achieved a daring sculptural design that many experts see as a foretaste of architecture in the third millennium.
Our visit will take us also through the pedestrian Old Quarter of Bilbao, the riverside modern quarters of Abandoibarra and Uribitarte, and finally Getxo, where we find the astonishing “Puente Colgante”, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. And as a grand finale, we will have a chance to try a delicious meal in one of the culinary treasures of Bilbao, before heading back to San Sebastian.
