Architecture Trip to Bilbao

Explore Bilbao and experience world class architecture in the Basque city

Bilbao has undergone an urbanistic revolution over the last few decades that has proven to be very successful. One does not have to go back further than the 1980's to find Bilbao as a run-down, industrial city with high unemployment percentages, massive pollution and extended poverty.

But in the 1980's Bilbao's townhall decided to take some bold desicions. They succeeded in reversing the situation through far-sighted urban planning and made a strategic change of the city. This made possible for Bilbao to have a major facelift. The most important lever has been the construction of modern architecture, urban planning and cultural innovation. Today, Bilbao is both greener, richer and more attractive than ever before.

Let us help you planning the trip - we have more than 15 years of experience organizing company tours to Bilbao.
