Bilbao Guide

The Spanish city of Bilbao, located in the autonomous region of the Basque Country, lies in the north central part of Spain and is around 14km to the south of the Bay of Biscay, where the estuary of Bilbao is formed. The city is the capital of the province of Biscay and is the main commercial and cultural hub of northern Spain. One of the main drivers behind the city's reputation is the Guggenheim Museum which draws visitors in to the city who then find out for themselves the other interesting attractions the city has on offer. The city's location makes it the perfect port of entry to the northern Iberian Peninsular and to south west France.

The city's port lies on the Bilbao Abra Bay, and along the Estuary of Bilbao in Biscay (the Basque Country). The port's main facilities can be found in the Santurtzi and Zierbena municipalities, approximately 15 km west of Bilbao.
