You could be forgiven for forgetting you’re in Spain when you visit the Basque Country (País Vasco). Its green, mountainous interior and rugged coastline seem to have served as a buffer from the outside world over the centuries, allowing a rich and distinctive culture to evolve that is sure to captivate you.
Art appreciation takes on a whole new meaning in Bilbao. The iconic and breathtaking Museo Guggenheim is merely one example of this city’s exciting cultural renaissance. Follow the river road to the coast, where dramatic cliffs, long sandy beaches and glorious views abound.
Like your food rich, bursting with seafood and artfully presented? Wait til you try San Sebastián’s pintxos! Unanimously considered Spain’s finest tapas, pintxos would be reason enough to visit this elegant coastal resort, but you’ll also be enchanted by its stunning beach and atmospheric old town.
