Designed by famed Canadian-American architect Frank Gehry, the Guggenheim Museum is undoubtedly the main attraction that draws visitors to Bilbao.
This impressive titanium-clad landmark, which shimmers in the Spanish sunlight, opened in 1997 and is now one of the most iconic buildings in the country.
Prior to the museum's opening, Bilbao was in something of a post-industrial depression.
This modern and contemporary art museum marked the beginning of a regeneration that essentially put Bilbao on the map thanks to the building's innovative, eye-catching design.
With thousands of works on display within and without, it's worth dedicating a few hours to visiting the museum.
