BILBAO: The Amazing New and Old City

I would like to show you the Bilbao's Metro Area, the biggest city of the Basque Country and north of Spain. Those are some photos I've taken during last years.

Some basic dates, and a video for you to know this great city:

Bilbao is the largest city in the Basque Country and the capital of the province of Biscay, Spain. The city has 353,168 inhabitants (2007) and is the most financially and industrially active part of Greater Bilbao, the zone in which almost half of the Basque Country’s population lives. Greater Bilbao’s 953,152 inhabitants are spread along the length of the Nervión River, whose banks are home also to numerous businesses and factories, which during the industrial revolution brought heightened prosperity to the region.

A major seaport and industrial centre, the city is located on the Estuary of Bilbao, the city's suburbs extending to the Bay of Biscay. The population of the city of Bilbao proper was 353,168 in 2007. The population of the urban area of Greater Bilbao (the conurbation) was 953,152 as of 2007 estimates. Population of the metropolitan area (urban area plus satellite towns) was 950,155 as of 2007 estimates, ranking as the fifth-largest metropolitan area of Spain.[1] As of 2008[update], the mayor of Bilbao is Iñaki Azkuna.

A finales del mes de Agosto de 2009 realizamos un vuelo panorámico en avioneta sobre el Bilbao Metropolitano y la costa de Bizkaia hasta Urdaibai con la empresa Air Quality, la cual os recomiendo ya que, aparte de ser una experiencia preciosa en sí misma, el trato de sus responsables fue en todo momento inmejorable. Desde esa altura se pueden apreciar puntos de vista nuevos y sorprendentes para la gran mayoría de nosotros, se puede disfrutar de los espectaculares paisajes de la costa Bizkaína y de la ciudad y, además, a los que no conozcan del todo bien el territorio les servirá para situarse.

Como veis, partiremos del Aeropuerto de Bilbao en dirección a la costa de Getxo. Desde ahí seguiremos por el mar rodeando Bizkaia por Plentzia, Bakio y, finalmente, Bermeo, entre otros. Por Urdaibai nos adentraremos de nuevo en tierra y pasando por Gernika o Mungía, por ejemplo, sobrevolaremos el Bilbao Metropolitano hasta volver a tomar tierra en el aeródromo bilbaíno. Durante todo este recorrido podremos observar desde impresionantes paisajes naturales hasta las obras que continúan transformando la metrópoli bilbaína y de las que os informamos en Bilbao en Construcción!

The change (for good) of Bilbao in the last years has been incredible, it has a very special charm that I like very much: a mixture of XIX and XXth century burguesy neighborhoods with old heavy industry areas, big fast developments from the 60´s and 70´s and now the most modern tendencys in architecture and urbanism. All this very dense in a extremily beatiful setting. Thank you for the pictures, I would appreciate some Street level ones
