Throughout history, Bilbao has been a very appreciated city. This, above all, was due to the privileges granted by the Crown of Castile that allowed the construction and development of a port system of reference based on the wool trade.

Nowadays, this city is the most important enclave of the Cantabrian coast. An example of this is that it was chosen to house one of the most prestigious modern art centers in the world, the Guggenheim Museum.

The train station, located next to the Nervion Estuary, makes daily trips to Madrid and Barcelona. It also provides connections to Logroño, Zaragoza, Valladolid, Salamanca, Málaga, A Coruña, Vigo, Burgos, León and Segovia.

The Termibus bus station is located in the heart of Bilbao, very close to the San Mamés stadium. Regional, national and international trips depart from here (
