If there is a city that stands out as a cultural and urban destination, this is Bilbao. That's why it was named Best European City 2018and since 1997 it has surprised travelers with the Guggenheim Museum. An art benchmark that has considerably increased Bilbao's cultural offerings, with a renewed look at the river.
Discovering the most artistic city in the Basque Country is very easy from Occidental Hotels & Resorts in Bilbao, where all experiences are available for guests. Discover a journey through the avant-garde on the shores of the river.
Art lovers have a date with the refurbished Fine Arts Museum and Azkuna Zentroa, an old wine store converted into a space where concerts, exhibitions, conferences and a sample of the best cuisine in Bilbao are held. Also in the city center is the Palacio de Congresos y de la Música with concerts, opera and theater, while the Sala BBK organizes exhibitions and film cycles.
In Bilbao, the best plans arise simply by strolling through the Casco Viejo and its pintxos houses, from the gardens of Arenal and the Plaza Nueva to the Portal de Zamudio, which opens up the Siete Calles. Take a look at the stalls in Mercado de la Ribera (the largest indoor market in Europe) and visit the Gothic-style cathedral after replenishing your batteries with pintxos de changurro or cod al pil-pil, accompanied by txakolí.
From Occidental Hotels & Resorts in Bilbao, in the heart of the historic center, reach Mount Artxanda by bus, bus or funicular, with the best panoramic views of the city.
