Our first stop will be at the Guggenheim Museum, designed by the North American architect Frank Gehry and built on a 32,500 square meter site in the center of Bilbao. The building itself is an extraordinary combination of interconnecting shapes. Impressive limestone blocks contrast with curved architectural forms covered in titanium. Glass curtain walling provides the building with the light and transparency it needs. After the visit we will make a city tour of Bilbao covering its most attractive parts. We will walk through the narrow streets of the Old Town, exploring the highlights such as Plaza Nueva, the Cathedral of Santiago, the Ribera Market and San Anton church.
