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.
