Not many people have heard of this town, except for Spaniards and maybe some adventurous travelers. Well, I didn’t know of this town either. On my drive from Santander to San Sebastian, I found this little Spanish treasure. Surrounded by the lush green Cantabrian mountains and the Pyrenees, sitting on the Nervion rivers bank Bilbao entertains drive-through tourists and travelers.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row height=”auto” seperator_indeed_locker=”” lk_t=”ism_template_1″ lk_io=”default” lk_dm=”0″ lk_thm=”0″ lk_tuo=”0″ ru_on=”0″ uhc_on=”0″ ur_on=”0″ ref_on=”0″][vc_column][us_single_image image=”4189″ align=”center”][vc_column_text]Bilbao prospered because of steel production, ship making, and mining but unfortunately, all this come to an end in 1970’s. Bilbao was reborn in 1997, Bilbao has become famous for the Guggenheim Museum, designed by Frank Gehry. The museum of modern and contemporary art but what is more amazing is the building this museum is housed in, the building itself is artwork, the titanium cladding will take your breath away.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]This town has a charming personality, narrow streets, old apartment buildings with flowers hanging from the balconies. It is much cooler been in the north of Spain on an Autumn morning. The river sidewalk was busy with visitors and locals hanging out just enjoying the sun and fresh air.[/vc_column_text][us_single_image image=”4191″ align=”center”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row seperator_indeed_locker=”” lk_t=”ism_template_1″ lk_io=”default” lk_dm=”0″ lk_thm=”0″ lk_tuo=”0″ ru_on=”0″ uhc_on=”0″ ur_on=”0″ ref_on=”0″][vc_column][vc_column_text]Solo Travel

Lots of cafes and restaurants to have coffee and watch the world go by. There is a big statue of a dog (Puppy) in front of the museum which gets a lot of attention. A surprising thing about this dog or I should say the statue is its covered with about seasonal flowers. Which makes a great place to take photos and hang out admiring nature and art coming together.[/vc_column_text][us_single_image image=”4190″ align=”center”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row height=”auto” seperator_indeed_locker=”” lk_t=”ism_template_1″ lk_io=”default” lk_dm=”0″ lk_thm=”0″ lk_tuo=”0″ ru_on=”0″ uhc_on=”0″ ur_on=”0″ ref_on=”0″][vc_column][vc_column_text]
