BILBAO

Bilbao, with Guggenheim Museum as a great international symbol, is the gateway to the Basque cultural universe.

Structured around its, the city has become a showroom for great architects, e.g. Norman Foster, Santiago Calatrava, Frank Gehry and Arata Isozaki among others, whose modern buildings waltz with the historical buildings surrounding the oldest part of the city, i.e. the 7 streets, the very heart of the city.

Discover the stunning location where Game of Thrones was filmed! You have to climb 241 steps to reach the 10th century chapel set atop this marvellous isthmus, a protected biotope.

GETXO

Visit this town just 27 km from Gorliz to see one of the most unique edifications worldwide, namely Bizkaia Bridge. An iron construction built by a Bizkaian engineer, a disciple of Eiffel, which joins both banks of the Nervión estuary. If you don’t suffer from vertigo, cross the panoramic footpath 50 metres up or simply on board the gondola that ‘floats’ over the river.
From the ‘hanging bridge’, a stroll along the beach bordered by magnificent mansions belonging to some of the most important Bizkaian entrepreneurs brings us to the marina to finish in an old fishermen’s quarter which today houses numerous bars and restaurants

GERNIKA

Gernika is the symbol of Basque democracy. In 1937 the Nazi bombers in connivance with the guidelines of the coup conspirator General Franco bombarded the town of Gernika to rehearse the bombings they would perform during WWII, a tragedy reflected in Picasso’s Gernika.

Don’t forget to visit the Museum of Peace to learn about our history.
