The bustling metropolis of Bilbao is central to all that is Basque, and is a happy-go-lucky hub of history, culture, nightlife, and art and architecture, as well as being home to Spain’s best cuisine. 

There’s something for everyone in Bilbao. World-class museums, art galleries and entertainment make the city a cultural hotspot that’ll lead you on fascinating journeys into history and art. While its array of top-notch Michelin-starred restaurants, authentic food and fish markets, and cute little ‘pintxos’ bars — a sort of Basque version of tapas— Bilbao will transfix your taste buds and see you travelling to the region again and again.

Expect t-shirts, caps and other clothes, mugs and plates, key rings and notebooks, all with trademark kukuxumusu designs.
