The Old and the New Bilbao with a private guide


Welcome to Bilbao! It is the biggest and the most cosmopolitan city in Basque Country. Life here feels the other way , Bilbao style!
The city of Bilbao has an intense history: born as a merchant village, it grew up to be an industrial super city. Although that didn't last forever, and now Bilbao is a new place: a dynamic business city with a lot of life!
The streets of this amazing city tell their story: how the District of the 7 Streets struggled through the centuries and became what it is today. The history lives in stone: ultra-modern buildings like Guggenheim Museum and Isozaki Towers are good neighbours of XVIII -XIXth century houses.
Bilbao reflects vividly in the character of its inhabitants: arrogant and extremely proud of their place. All the jokes about the supremacy of Bilbao's people over everybody else have some point of truth…
