Welcome to Biscay, Spain

Tourism in Biscay

line

It is located in the Basque Country in northern Spain. Its capital, Bilbao, has become a symbol of modern architecture thanks to its avant-garde buildings. Vizcaya is the most densely populated province in the Basque Country, and has both cities and rural areas which conserve the full flavour of country living. There are also towns in the interior which are well worth visiting, such as Durango, Elorrio, Otxandio, Orduña and Balsameda. Its 150 kilometres of coastline have everything from beaches with golden sand, to cliffs and charming fishing villages. The coast is also where visitors will find the Hanging Bridge of Vizcaya, awarded the World Heritage designation by the UNESCO, as well as idyllic spaces such as San Juan de Gaztelugatxe and the Urdaibai Biosphere Reserve. The local gastronomy is strongly influenced by its proximity to the sea. Particular delicacies include the “pintxos” (delicious miniature dishes) and recipes such as cod à la vizcaína or grilled butterflied sea bream. Biscay offers first-class cultural attractions. From visiting museums, like the Bilbao Guggenheim Museum with its original shape and exhibitions, to enjoying a concert at any village around Biscay, or jazz festivals, folklore festivals, etc. Its historical and monument heritage puts the crown to the wonderful heterogeneous, quality cultural reality, capable of satisfying any taste.
