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.

Stock up on a selection of bread, cheese and cold meats, pickles, sweets pastries and fresh fruit and salad. Then head to one of the nearby parks or beaches and eat like a king.

Most people don't realise that Vitoria-Gasteiz is the capital of the Basque Country. Just an hour by bus from Bilbao, the city is well worth a visit for its historic buildings, including two cathedrals, the spectacular Artium contemporary art museum and of course, its restaurants and pintxo bars in the Old Quarters.
