Bilbao

By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Our Editorial team's advice

The Basque capital, Bilbao, is a very industrialised port city. However, it has conserved a particular charm that is revealed in the small alleys of the old city, around the Plaza Nueva, on the right shore of the Nervión river. The Cathedral, the Guggenheim Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts and the Basque Archaeological, Anthropological and Historical Museum compose the main cultural attractions of the city. West of Bilbao, the village of La Reineta, accessible by a funicular, offers a wide view over the ancient docks. On the eastern shore of the estuary, Algorta is an elegant seaside resort.

To think about

The shops and banks tend to be located around the Gran Via. The most emblematic, not-to-be-missed buildings are the Arriaga Theatre and Santiago Cathedral. This is where the market is held every Sunday, as well as the celebrations for the Santo Tomás festival.

To try

The best place to try different pintxos is in the old town (and notably 'Siete Calles', which has plenty of restaurants).
