Bilbao Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations


Bilbao, capital of Vizcaya, is now a leading centre for art and architecture. The Guggenheim Museum has had a magnetic effect on the city, where it has been the catalyst for transforming this large industrial centre on the estuary of the River Nervíon, formerly known only for its industrial port and its iron and steel industry. A vast urban redevelopment plan has seen Bilbao transformed into a vibrant and dynamic city.
