Arguably the most exquisite historic building in Spain is the Royal Palace of Madrid. Here the Spanish royal family frequently host banquets, state ceremonies, and royal functions.

Established on 18 October 1997, the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao was a major addition to the city, as one of the largest museums in Spain. The museum was built along the Nervion River, with an excellent view of the mountain ranges nearby. Once opened, the building’s contemporary architecture style received positive reviews from art critics and the public alike for its unique design, which is still a sight to behold to this day!
Today the museum receives millions of visitors every year, vying to see rotating pieces from the Guggenheim’s global, permanent collection, or one of the many large-scale installation pop-ups by contemporary artists. The museum is easily accessible by the Eusko Tran’s Line A, and is a must see for anyone in Bilbao.
