The inauguration of the Guggenheim Museum in 97 put Bilbao on the international map. A modern city by the sea and full of green landscapes. And, of course, no visit to Bilbao is complete without a stroll around the Pintxos route, taking in some great wines, another attraction in this charming city. In spite of its urban transformation which has placed it on the world stage as a modern city it retains a culture that is prevalent in the atmosphere.
Bilbao has some identity traits that make it unique. It has transformed itself from an industrial capital into a city identified with design and modernity. With a huge infrastructure for holding events and meetings that enjoy that stamp of distinction provided by the architecture in this emblematic city.
