Highlights of a Free Tour in Bilbao

Bilbao was a dark industrial town that transformed itself into one of the hippest cultural hubs of Europe in just a few decades. The key to this amazing reinvigoration was a huge investment in culture, avant-garde museums, and futuristic urbanism. Now, this Basque city is home to many feats of contemporary architecture that travelers can admire by booking a fun Free Tour in Bilbao. In particular, you cannot miss the amazing Guggenheim Museum, designed by Frank Gehry to look like a massive steel boat in the Nervion River. This museum has been hailed as one of the absolute must-see attractions in Spain, so take your time to admire its many exhibitions. Other important highlights are the Museum of Fine Arts of Bilbao, the Alhondiga (Azkuna Zentroa), the Gothic Cathedral of Santiago, or the Zubizuri footbridge, designed by world-famous architect Santiago Calatrava.
