Places of Interest
Mount Artxanda: discover the hill with the best panoramic views of Bilbao
Going up Mount Artxanda is a great way to see Bilbao from a different perspective and, often, observing places from the highest point helps us to take it all in that little bit better.
The Santimamiñe Cave: A Palaeolithic treasure
The cave, accidentally discovered by a group of children in 1916, contains the largest example of rock paintings in the province of Biscay.
Urdaibai Biosphere Reserve: the Basque Country’s natural gem
The area surrounding the estuary of the Oka river is a marshland paradise filled with migratory birds, “enchanted” forests, wild beaches, sheer cliffs and fishing villages.

The Forest de Oma is a place full of magic and beauty. Make sure you don’t miss the remarkable work of the Basque artist Agustín Ibarrola.
