After enjoying the festivities in San Sebastián, it was almost a relief to arrive in the beautiful city of Bilbao. I felt I could breathe once again and really liked the heartbeat of the city.
Bilbao was such a nice surprise. As far as the Guggenheim goes, what’s not to like about titanium, limestone, and glass??? A true inspiration to me architecturally, I find it hard to put into words how it moved me. But there is so much more than than the Gugg (as the locals call it), the city is woven with beautiful belle epoch and modern architecture, married into a very compatible and comfortable combination. I loved the integration of all types of commerce, retail, services, and education throughout the center of town. We were delighted to just sit and people watch the various ages interacting. We loved our first visit to Bilbao in Basque Country.
As usual, here are some photo memories:
