The rugged Basque port city of Bilbao has everything the culturally curious traveler could ask for: an excellent food scene, world class museums and a endlessly curious history.
Standing majestically along the Nervión river, Bilbao’s stunning landscape and rich cultural history are a compelling combination for visitors. The city’s most emblematic monument is of course the Guggenheim museum, Frank Gehry's otherworldly structure that exploded onto the cityscape in 1997 and transformed the industrial port city's destiny, putting it on the cultural map like never before. This captivating metropolis serves as a microcosm of the complex and fascinating history of the Iberian Peninsula and the many different cultures that have co-existed across it. All of them are intriguing; but the Basques, in particular, have a special level of intrigue due to their distinctiveness and somewhat mysterious origins. Explore the many layers of this city with Context's Bilbao private tours.
