Azkuna Zentroa — Alhóndiga Bilbao

This old warehouse has been renovated to become one of Bilbao's most vibrant cultural venues. There are activities for everyone, from exhibitions to cinemas, kids' activities, concerts, lectures and a library–the 43,000 square meter space has it all. If you get hungry during your visit, it provides several opportunities for refreshments to your liking.In 2015, the building, previously known as Alhóndiga Bilbao, was renamed Azkuna Zentroa in tribute to the late mayor of Bilbao, Iñaki Azkuna, who changed the industrial Bilbao into a cultural masterpiece.

A Walk Along the River

From the ultra-modern Conference Centre and Concert Hall Palacio Euskalduna Jauregia, walk east along the riverbank, which is filled with beautiful sculptures and some very impressive modern architecture. You will pass the Guggenheim Museum and Santiago Calatrava’s stunning Zubi Zuri Footbridge, which spans the Nervión river between the Guggenheim and the Ayuntamiento.

Zubizuri Bridge

The white structure of the impressive pedestrian bridge over the Nervion River can be seen from far away on a sunny summer’s day in Bilbao. It's extra special since the bridge was designed to look like a sailboat, ten metres above the river. Zubizuri connects Campo Volantín Boulevard with Uribitarte, and from the bridge, you have a stunning view of the Guggenheim Museum. There used to be a glass floor, but after complaints, the city decided to place a non-slip mat. So even on a rainy day, you can walk there safely.

Day Trip to Donostia — San Sebastián

This is a city set between two hills around the beautiful bay of La Concha. San Sebastian, or Donosti as it is known by the locals, makes for an unforgettable day trip, where you can take in the glorious Belle Epoque balustrades and visit world-famous restaurants. There are four areas that you should visit. The first one is Parte Vieja, the Old Town, where you can find the popular pintxo bars and eat til you drop. South of Parte Vieja, you'll find the shopping district and heading towards the coast you will come across three beaches: Zurriola, the preferred spot for local surfers, La Concha, and Ondarreta, where the posh neighbourhood is.
