I often get asked what else is there to be seen in Spain apart from Barcelona. Certainly, most people go to Madrid to visit its museums, and other love to go to Andalucia for its Muslim heritage and the beaches. But if you ask me, I am totally in love with the Basque Country!
Today we have my colleague Aitor share with you some of the best things you can do in his area. Make sure to include a trip to the Basque Country after your stay in Barcelona!
THE HIDDEN JEWEL OF SPAIN
5 things not to miss in the Basque Country
From pintxos (top delicacies served in bars) to great restaurants lost in the middle of the mountains. Not to miss San Sebastian, the city with the highest number of Michelin Stars restaurants per inhabitant.
The Guggenheim Museum is a must, but all the surrounding area (Abandoibarra) is also worth visiting for its architecture, as part of the renewal of this Phoenix city of Bilbao.
Go to the amusement park in Igeldo to have one of the best views of San Sebastian. From there you can see the Pyrenees, too. And even France!.
