Bilbao - Guggenheim Museum
Bilbao, the industrial and financial capital of the Basque Country, is situated between two ranges of hills on both sides of the River Nervion. The iron ore mines near the city were discovered by the Romans, who paved the way for the numerous foundries later built on both banks of the river.
Today, the city is undergoing a spectacular transformation, factories and port installations are being renovated into spectacular urban projects such as the ultra-modern and visually striking Guggenheim Museum, a jewel in the city's crown. The Guggenheim Museum is a museum of modern and contemporary art designed by Canadian-American architect Frank Gehry. The museum was inaugurated on 18 October 1997 by King Juan Carlos I of Spain, with an exhibition of 250 contemporary works of art that you will have the opportunity to admire.
