Bilbao is a spellbinding capital of art, design and gastronomy, with one of the world’s finest buildings – the Guggenheim – at its heart. The city fizzles with energy, with hundreds of bars and cafes and acres of wonderful shopping. Choose a wonderful holiday rental right in the medieval pedestrianized Casco Viejo (Old Town), the neighbouring elegant New Town, or further afield in its diverse neighbourhoods such as the nightlife hub of IndautxuLettings for all tastes

Holidays in Bilbao
The area and getting around
Bilbao is located in the far north of Spain on the Bay of Biscay. The city is the capital of the famous Basque region, which is home to a unique culture and language. Bilbao is divided by its river into the old and new town. The old is fully pedestrianized and home to Bilbao’s beautiful Neoclassical architecture and the best place for nightlife, the foodie scene or just to soak in the Spanish culture.Diverse Bilbao welcomes you to its many attractions
The city’s elegant new town has an impressive array of attractions, including numerous world-class museums, superb river views and walks, and several of the finest restaurants and bars in Spain. Just south of the new town is La Vieja, one of Bilbao’s trendiest neighbourhoods and a great place to hang with the locals and absorb modern Spanish art, cuisine and fashion.
Travellers and activities
Bilbao is the biggest city in north Spain and offers the best nightlife in any city north of Madrid. Casco Viejo is the best area to head to for bars, particularly around Plaza Nueva. Locals go wild for 'txakoli', a local dry white wine, and 'kalimotxo' the cheap and cheerful but popular combination of cola and red wine. For a night out brimming with local custom and culture, take in a typically Basque cider tavern or 'sagardotegi', and fill up on char-grilled meat and copious amounts of the local cider.Bilbao for museum enthusiasts
Bilbao offers a maelstrom of cultural attractions including several world-class museums. The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao is an icon of New Bilbao and one of the most recognised contemporary art museums in the world; an architecture and engineering marvel to contemplate and simply drool at. Don’t miss the Bilbao Maritime Museum, housed in a unique setting in the old Euskalduna shipyards. This highly popular museum disseminates the maritime heritage of the Estuary of Bilbao and its surroundings. Another great afternoon is to be had at the Basque Museum of Bilbao, which brings the Basque culture to life with myriad exhibits describing the history and ongoing struggles of the fascinating people of the Basque country.
Bilbao is the Basque region, which has its own official language with no connection to any Latin-based tongue. An eskerrik asko (thank you) will make you an instant hit with the locals!
