One of the most photographed symbols of the city is the Guggenheim museum. Alongside, you will find Puppy, the colourful iconic sculpture by Jeff Koons. Fans of modern art will enjoy touring the various rooms of the Guggenheim, although if you want to get as much into the day as possible, just admire the exterior. Designed by Frank O. Gehry, the famous Canadian architect, it will leave you speechless.

Next to the Doña Casilda park is the Gran Vía, the city’s main artery where the leading shops and businesses are located. Then, in just a few steps, you will reach the Azkuna Zentroa, one of Bilbao’s cultural nerve centres, with concerts, exhibitions, live art, documentaries, and much more.
