Hotels in Bilbao
Bilbao is a vibrant and energetic metropolitan area in sun-drenched northern Spain. Mirroring its scenic position alongside the mountains and the river, it fuses the old and new.
The close proximity of Bilbao hotels to major landmarks and transport stations means you'll always feel at the heart of the action. The many hip boutique hotels in city centre locations are a convenient, modern alternative to the traditional Spanish villa.
A branch of the famous Guggenheim Museum can be found in Bilbao. The ArcelorMittal Gallery is a permanent exhibition space, part of 11,000 square metres of displays.
The Museo Bellas Artes de Bilbao is a short walk from the Guggenheim. The museum is dedicated to the fine arts, and the permanent collection includes more than eight thousand works.
The area is extremely well connected for public transport, giving you more chance to explore Spain. Bilbao Abando train station is known locally as Estación del Norte – ‘North Station'. It's the main terminal in the region, with links to Barcelona, Madrid and Málaga.
Food and drink
Bilbao's reputation for delicious cuisine is widely known. It's part of the Basque region, and as such you can easily find pintxos – Basque tapas – to nibble on. A Spanish take on ‘surf and turf' is also likely to be on the menu.
Wash your snacks down with txakoli wine – for a lighter drink, try kalimotxo, red wine mixed with cola. A zurito is a small beer, and you'll find cocktails and spirits at Bilbao's many bars and nightclubs.
The town feels obsessed with food, shown in the sheer number of eateries. Along with changing seasonal dishes and delicacies, the resulting choice means you can eat differently every day.
If you only visit one shop during your holiday, head to El Corte Inglés. This massive department store has souvenirs, essentials, fashion and groceries under one roof.
Luxury and designer-brand stores line the Plaza Moyúa. Close by, there are some familiar names including Clarks and H&M. The area south of the plaza has a number of adult stores, so keeping an eye on the kids is especially important.
La Ribera Market, in the old town, is in the book of Guinness World Records as the largest indoor market in Europe. The record's based on the impressive number of stores and outlets.
