If you are seeking to submerge yourself in the local culture of Bilbao Bizkaia, an excellent way to do this is by visiting the traditional markets and agricultural and livestock fairs in the area. In these places you can find a wide variety of fresh and quality products directly from the source, but also try typical dishes from the area along with good local wine, such as Bizkaiko Txakolina.

When you look round Bilbao, you will see that it is a city open to the world, where new trends in architecture and design are a reflection of contemporary movements. The urban renewal the city has undergone in recent years, as well as its surroundings since the opening of the Bilbao Guggenheim Museum, has extended to all the commercial businesses and buildings which contain avant-garde decoration worthy of visiting and, of course, for shopping.
