Basque Country – Rough Beauty!

The North of Spain offers its own beauties, best example is the Basque Country! Absolutely ESpain acts as a DMC in Spain covering the mayor destinations including this region.

Bilbao was once famous for its shipyards and chimney stacks, but is now best known as a tourist destination, offering lots of pleasant surprises for the visitor. The Guggenheim was the beginning of Bilbao’s renaissance but fact is the city has a lot more to offer than just this amazing piece of modern architecture. With its medieval origins, the capital of Biscay was once a center of iron and steel but has captured the sparkle and pace of present-day Spain to become a Mecca for contemporary art and aesthetics. A blending of old and new, located on the banks of the Nervión River.

Enjoy the famous Gran Vía with neoclassical palaces; the Metro; the Bridge of Universities; the Congress Center – work of the architects Foster and Calatrava… But most impressive is the historical center (“Casco Viejo”) – narrow streets and alleys, many ornamental fountains and beautiful buildings, such as the Baroque Cathedral of Santiago declared National Ancient Monument, the “Plaza Nueva” (new square), the Palace of Chavarri’s, the Sota’s houses, the Palace of the Country Council and the Townhall building. All this surrounded by wonderful lush, green, rolling hills, it’s in a stunning setting!

San Sebastian, also known as Donostia, lies along a white sandy bay between the Urgull and Igueldo hills. Fishermen houses, a smart suburb and modern districts make it one of the most attractive cities on the Cantabrian coast. The Museum of San Telmo, the Peine del Viento (the Wind Comb) and the Kursaal are examples of how the city brings together modern and traditional features. Meanwhile, the province of Guipuzcoa, of which San Sebastián is the capital, blends sea and mountains, offering the traveler landscape, sports and cuisine, as well as interesting monuments. Basque cuisine has a recognized international prestige. And of course the International Film Festival held since 1958!

Absolutely a beauty in disguise!
