The new BILBAO (Basque Country, Spain)

Bilbao, (Bilbo or Bilbao in Basque), in the North of Spain, is the largest city in the Basque Country and the capital of the province of Biscay (Basque: Bizkaia). The city has 354,145 inhabitants (2006) 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 946,829 inhabitants are spread along the length of the Nervión River, whose banks are home also to numerous business and factories, which during the industrial revolution brought heightened prosperity to the region.

Bilbao is 95km from my city (Santander) and I spent there two days.

Here we go....

Great looking city in a wonderfully green, lush, cool, somewhat-wet region of Spain. A contrast indeed from the much more dry climate of most other parts of Spain. And just like most other regions in Spain, this one has it's unique look.
