Pocket Guide: Bilbao

Bustling Bilbao is the biggest city in the Basque region, and offers a terrific range of cultural and culinary attractions. Stroll along the Nervión River as it flows through the city centre, discover Bilbao’s industrial and maritime past at the Maritime Museum, and visit the Guggenheim Museum, a world-famous contemporary art gallery that symbolises the city’s post-industrial regeneration.

Head out of Bilbao’s buzzing centre to discover mossy green mountains and pristine beaches. Just 20 minutes’ drive or a 30-minute Metro ride will bring you to the Bilbao Bay area, packed with seaside resorts and fishing villages. Travel just a little way south of the city and you’ll be in the mountains – Urkiola Natural Park and Gorbeiako Natural Park are around 40 minutes’ drive from away.

A Historic Town with a Bright Future

Bilbao began its life back in the 1400s as a sleepy fishing settlement. It grew into one of Spain’s most important port cities, then turned into a shining example of urban renewal in its post-industrial era. Today Bilbao’s architecture ranges from award-winning avant-garde galleries to Gothic cathedrals to elegant historic hotels. There’s something new at every turn, making Bilbao a great city to explore on foot.

If you want to explore the Basque culinary tradition, Bilbao is the place. Foodies flock to Bilbao for its incredible pintxos (tapas) and regional specialities such as ‘bacalao pil pil’, a delicious salt cod, garlic and olive oil dish.

Do Business in Bilboa

Bilbao’s award-winning conference and exhibition centres have helped make it a popular business travel destination. There is a good range of business hotels in Bilbao, and major venues such as the Euskalduna Jauregia centre are located in the heart of the city, so they’re close to some of the best sights and attracitons too.

Accommodation in Bilbao ranges from grand heritage hotels to affordable one and two-star guesthouses, B&Bs and hostels. Look in the city centre for modern business hotels, or try the Casco Viejo – the Old Town – for historic properties in atmospheric streets.

Which Bilbao Neighbourhoods Are Good to Stay In?

Bilbao’s Casco Viejo is a fascinating maze of cafes, restaurants, hotels, stores and markets. Here you’ll find the stunning Gothic Catedral de Santiago and the arcaded Plaza Nueva, one of the best places to discover pinxo bars.

The Abandoibarra neighbourhood, to the north of the city centre, used to Bilbao’s port. Today it is home to parks, boardwalks and museums, including the Guggenheim and Maritime Museum.

For elegant, tree-lined streets and luxurious hotels, try the Indautxu neighbourhood, an affluent part of the city with a wonderful English garden in the Doña Casilda Iturrizar park.
