I've always wondered how to pronounce the name of this lovely city. Is it: 'Bill-bow' ?

Looks like a very cool city. Perfect mix between old and new architecture and some great urban architecture (sidewalks, streets, greenery) as well.

Bilbao is an incredibly underrated city. If you read the guidebooks you might be forgiven for thinking that it's a depressed industrial town that doesn't have much to offer other than the Guggenheim. Nothing could be further from the truth. This city has some amazing architecture all over the place, great infrastructure and a beautiful setting. A true gem.

Crisis as a influence on the development of the city?

Are you reading guidebooks from the 90s?

Now it's rightly lauded as one of the best examples of urban regeneration in Europe. I'm always hearing great things about the city.
