Bilbao is one of the principal port cities on the Northern Coast of Spain. This capital city of the Biscay Province in Basque Country is surrounded by mountains and the Nervion River runs through the city creating some beautiful scenery. It attracts a large number of tourists each year, and not just because of the Guggenheim Museum designed by Frank Gehry, but because its cuisine and its urban architecture make the perfect combination for some great holidays.
