Bilbao Spain Mar 04, 2018
Bilbao is in the Basque Country in Northern Spain, an interesting place , plenty to see and do. I stayed 2 night at Tryp Arenal hotel ,very central near road bridge over the river. Things to see and do, -- The Guggenheim is a modern museum world famous.. I liked the Flower Dog outside, tons of soil ,with wire supporting plants and flowers in the shape of a large dog.---Take a stroll along the Promanade at the side of the river.----Casilda Park is in the city centre off the main street.There are different species of tree with names on a little description sign at the base.----Santiago Cathedral is a catholic cathedral in the city of Bilbao ,officially declared a cathedral in 1950, but it originates from 1300.----The sculpture by Jorge Oteiza is near the City Hall by the river Nervion. ----Vizcaya Bridge is a Transporter bridge [ Hanging bridge ]started in 1890. Oldest in the World. Foot passengers and cars are on the Gondola,it is possible to go up the leg of the bridge to walk over top.----Funicular Artxanda is used by locals and tourists,starts near the river. Good view at top. ----Plaza Nueva many cafes and bars, in this large square. Busy by day and night with young and old.----Sagredo Coraon,sacred heart monument ,on a traffic island at the end of main street. ---Market is an indoor market near the river towards Axturi station by the river.Said to be the largest indoor market in Spain.---Visit Abando rail station to see the beautiful coloured glass window of working life in Bilbao. ---- Bilbao has a modern Metro.---- Trip to Gurnika ,train goes from Axturi Euskotren station,journey about 45 minutes.[ On the 26th April 1937 the Nazi bombed the town of Gurnika] now Gurnika is the city of Peace. ----- Transport, i arrived in Bilbao on the FEVE train from Santander at the FEVE Concordia station ,which is next door to Abando main RENFE station.There is a third station where the Euskatren to San Sebastion leaves.---Bilbao is well served by Bus, Tram , Metro, and Taxi.
