Destination Today

Bursting with optimism and a model of sustainability, Bilbao was named the Best European City of 2018 by the Academy of Urbanism for its remarkable transformation from a landscape of post-industrial blight into a revitalised and culturally thriving centre. Unlike some other cities in Spain, Bilbao has been run debt free since 2010, and its bold leadership has invested in the city’s future – both in the arts and in business and education.
