Bilbao’s international popularity soars

Bilbao in Spain is fast becoming an international hotspot, according to Lonely Planet.

The northern city is already famed for its cultural significance as the largest city in the Basque region, but is has enjoyed a surge in popularity as it targets a wider international audience.

According to Korina Miller, commissioning editor for Spain and Portugal at Lonely Planet, Bilbao has a versatile appeal to match any established luxury holiday destination.

“Mellow by day and hopping by night, Bilbao has arrived as an international hotspot in a stylishly late fashion.

Bilbao has reinvented itself as a vibrant metropolis, something which is increasingly recognised by international visitors.”

According to, the 19-gallery Guggenheim Museum is by far the most impressive attraction, showcasing the finest works of some of the 20th century’s most accomplished artists such as Picasso, Warhol and de Kooing.
