BILBAO BREAKS

Want a historic city for a vacation getaway? Tired of the usual sea-and-sun holidays? Come experience Bilbao!

Bilbao is the perfect escape for a person such as you. The city, sometimes referred to as Bilbo, is perched at the northern part of Spain. It is the biggest city in the Basque Country and the provincial capital of Biscay (Basque: Bizkaia).

Said to be the most progressive part of Gran Bilbao, the area where majority of Basque Country’s populace lives, Bilbao has a population of 354,000 as of 2003 estimates. The center of the hustle and bustle of this place is cradled by the river Nervión while its suburbs go on as far as the Bay of Biscay. The city edge surrounds the towns of Erandio, Sondika and Derio in the north. In the east, it is covered by Zamudio and Etxebarri. The southern boundary, on the other hand, passes outside Basauri and Arrigorriaga while Barakaldo and Alonsotegi define the west border.  Further, two mountain ranges, the Pagasarri and Artxanda, enfold the urban area of Bilbao to the south and north, respectively.

Bilbao is an interesting city with a wide selection of hotels and restaurants surrounded by breathtaking views of the countryside. Aside from its world-famous Guggenheim Museum, the city is also home to the Fine Arts Museum, which is considered as one of Spain’s finest art museums, and the Maritime Museum on the Nervion’s banks.

Being the Spanish that it is, Bilbao is also acclaimed for its magnificent churches. There is the Santiago Cathedral, named after the apostle James, the Saint Anton church, the Basilica of Begoña, the Saint Nicholas of Bari church, the Santos Juanes church and the Saint Vincent church. All are worth visiting. Not only does one get to appreciate the structures being architectural masterpieces but also for the spiritual high one would surely get from these places of worship.

Other fascinating places a tourist shouldn’t miss paying a visit to are the civil buildings of the city of Bilbao. Infrastructures such as the Arriaga Theater, the Bizkaia Delegation Palace, the Bilbao City Hall, the Chavarri Palace (Moyúa square), the Plaza Nueva and the Ribera Market.

Blessed with an Oceanic climate, generally mild, with not too extreme temperatures, Bilbao is perfect for a vacation any time of the year, whether you want to vacation in the summer or winter.
A city endowed with a colourful Spanish history, Bilbao was founded by Don Diego Lopez de Haro V, Lord of Biscay, on that fateful day of June in 1300.  Truly this place is something that a traveler who craves for history and arts will be filled with more than just a change of scenery.

The city of Bilbao could be reached via its 13 bridges, which connect both sides of the river Nervión. One could also use the underground network, referred to as the Metro Bilbao that serves more than 78 million passengers every year.

The city also offers its 30 Bilbobus bus lines, 25 regular buses and five “micro-buses” for areas in the vicinity of the heart of the city where regular buses are not allowed entry.   There are also over a hundred 100 BizkaiBus units that lend themselves as linkages between Bilbao and almost all the other places in Biscay and some parts of Alava.

One could also go by plane or by sea on the renowned Pride of Bilbao ferry, which leaves from the port of Bilbao, 15 kilometers west of the city centre.

Now that you know the place for your next holiday destination and the one million and one ways to get there, it’s time to pack your bags and book the next flight out.  Time is ticking fast.
