Our visit to Bilbao, Spain

We were delighted to have a weekend in Bilbao during their annual festival. What an amazing atmosphere across the city! A couple of good City Guide’s:

The main train station of Bilbao is called Abando Indalecio Prieto, but is known by the locals as Estación del norte (“North station”). It was built around 1870 and features a front façade in monumental and classical style.
