A walk through Bilbao

Ahhh Basque Country. It’s historic and proud, lively and tranquil, beautiful and most importantly delicious. Burgos is so close to Basque Country that I can’t believe I didn’t make it here sooner.

Bilbao has long been on my list of cities in Spain to visit. It has changed so much in the past 15 years. It used to be just a dark industrial city with not a whole lot of life (as the locals said) and now it’s vibrant, it’s multicultural, and colorful. Obviously when you come to Bilbao you visit the Guggenheim, but there is also the Calatrava bridge, the Plaza Nueva, The Fine Arts Museum, the Opera house, and so much more.

My friends and I took a day trip up to the museum capital of the Basque Country to explore. Here are a few photos from our journey.
