Places of (touristic) interest

Guggenheim Bilbao
probably no need for a description. Official site here.

Casco Viejo
Bilbao’s atmospheric old quarter, is full of charming streets, boisterous bars and plenty of quirky and independent shops. At the heart of the Casco are Bilbao’s original seven streets, Las Siete Calles, which date from the 1400s.

Museo Vasco
Probably the most complete museum of Basque culture and history in all of Spain.

Funicular de Artxanda
For a breathtaking view over the city, the valley it sits in and the wild Basque mountains beyond, take a trip to the summit of Artxanda.
