Bilbao at a glance
Because if you think you know Spain, this temperate, cosmopolitan and cultured city will first surprise, then enchant.
Just off the river, Zazpikaleak or Las Siete Calles (‘Seven Streets’) in the old town has the best buzz, and – more importantly – the best local snacks, pintxos.
You probably didn’t know
Athletic Bilbao is the only European football team to recruit solely Basque players.
