Barakaldo has undergone a spectacular transformation in recent years, unmatched by anything in our immediate environment. For those who have not visited us for some years, it is likely that an image of a city linked to heavy industrial activity and urban development that calls to be overlooked will linger in your minds.

We invite you to discover Barakaldo through its website.



San Juan de Gaztelugatxe – Eusko Guide

It is located in the Basque Country. Its capital, Bilbao, has become a symbol of modern architecture thanks to its avant-garde buildings, such as the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao. Bizkaia is the most densely populated province in the Basque Country, where both cities and rural areas can be found. There are also inland towns which are well worth visiting, such as Durango, Elorrio, Otxandio, Orduña and Balsameda. Its 150 kilometres of coastline offers beaches with golden sand, cliffs and charming fishing villages. Discover the Bizkaia through its website.

The coast is also home to the Biscay Transporter Bridge, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, idyllic places such as San Juan de Gaztelugatxe and the Urdaibai Biosphere Reserve. Its gastronomy is strongly influenced by its proximity to the sea. Its “pintxos” (delicious miniature dishes) and recipes such as cod Biscay style or grilled butterflied sea bream stand out.
