Discover Bilbao with a Pepecar hire car

The city of Bilbao is located in an environment that offers visitors places of great beauty and interest, such as Santurce, Baracaldo, Portugalete and Las Arenas, the latter linked by the impressive suspension bridge that was the first metal structure ferry built in the world.

 There is also the Balenciaga Museum, one of the world's most renowned designers. But we cannot forget the Basque gastronomy, which you can savour in the area of the pools: an explosion of flavours combined in an exquisite Basque pintxo.

We set off from La Paloma airport and head straight to the city. The journey is short, as only 13 kilometres separate La Paloma from the city centre. Once in the centre of Bilbao, there are many possibilities. We begin with a visit to the Guggenheim Museum, whose exterior is impressive in itself. Very close to the Guggenheim are the old shipyards, today converted into the Ría de Bilbao Maritime Museum, where you can learn about the naval tradition that made the city a reference point for this industry worldwide. 

Once this cultural visit is over, we can head to Bilbao's Old Quarter to take a stroll around the most typical bars in the area, where a pintxo (or a few...) is a must. In addition, along the famous "seven streets" you will find traditional and modern shops, so you can take advantage of the opportunity to do some shopping. 

Although the city has no beach, the coast is only a few kilometres away and is easy to explore. We start in Getxo, 15 kilometres from Bilbao, which we reach via the BI-637 road. Las Arenas is the best known neighbourhood in the municipality of Getxo, as it used to be a summer resort for the bourgeoisie. It is also the site of the Hanging Bridge, a unique infrastructure. 

From Las Arenas, we take the BI-634 road to Sopelana, specifically to Barrika, where the impressive cliffs offer us a beautiful view of the Cantabrian Sea. Both in winter and summer, Barrika is full of surfers, locals and tourists, who come to see the beautiful sunsets that can be enjoyed from the cliffs. The storms are also impressive from here, so the bravest can venture out to visit Barrika when it rains. 

And we conclude the coastal route with a visit to Gaztelugatxe, a small islet near Bermeo, known for the hermitage of San Juan located on it. This church dates back to the 10th century and is a piece of local history. The views of the horizon are marvellous, and the dark colour of the sea with the green vegetation is one of the most typical landscapes of the northern Spanish coast.
