Bilbao & Tapas in our tripNETer Road Trip

28 May

We are in Bilbao!

And we have to admit that we fell completely in love!!

This amazing city of the Basque Country didn’t let us even breath: There’s so many things to do!.

Walking through El Casco Viejo is a must! Don’t forget to climb the never-ending stairs from Plaza Unamuno to Parque Etxebarria for those breathtaking views.

It is also a must, to walk along the river or ‘La Ría’. In the last 10 years, Bilbao has suffered an intense renovation, and the ‘recovery’ of the river was one of the main goals. Our mark: First class with honors.

Down the river finally you run into the symbol of the green spain capital: Guggenheim Museum.


And we cannot forget the basque love for gastronomy and their Pintxos (or tapas). Nothing better that have some wine or a freezing spanish beer and speak out loud with your friends while different Pintxos are coming and going: cheese, anchovies, serrano ham, olives, spider crab, spanish tortilla or green peppers.


The tripNETer team bellies are still full!

    I fell in love with Bilbao as well! We had the best pintxos with mosto in Cafe Bar Bilbao located at Plaza Nueva. Guggenheim museum is very impressive from the outside, but to be honest I was dissapointed with the expositions. Anyway, would love to come back one day 🙂
