Vizcaya - Bizkaia

Bizkaia

It is located in the Basque Country in northern Spain. Its capital, Bilbao, has become a symbol of modern architecture thanks to its avant-garde buildings such as the Guggenheim Bilbao Museum. Vizcaya is the most densely populated province in the Basque Country, and has both cities and rural areas which conserve the full flavour of country living. There are also towns in the interior which are well worth visiting, such as Durango, Elorrio, Otxandio, Orduña and Balsameda. Its 150 kilometres of coastline have everything from beaches with golden sand, to cliffs and charming fishing villages. The coast is also where visitors will find the Hanging Bridge of Vizcaya, awarded the World Heritage designation by the UNESCO, as well as idyllic spaces such as San Juan de Gaztelugatxe and the Urdaibai Biosphere Reserve. The local gastronomy is strongly influenced by its proximity to the sea. Particular delicacies include the “pintxos” (delicious miniature dishes) and recipes such as cod à la vizcaína or grilled butterflied sea bream.
