Welcome to LodgingGuide's hospitality industry listings for the Bilbao area.
As the largest port town in Spain, Bilbao is highly industrialized, and its downtown area is dense with office buildings, skyscrapers and perpetual construction. Bilbao is famous for its Pamplona running, as bulls charge through the streets to their holding pens from which they will emerge later that day to fight in the bullring. Basque cuisine, which relies heavily on the fish and seafood that are native to the Bay of Biscay, and on local produce cooked just to the perfect degree (“el punto”), is respected throughout the world. La Rioja wine from the Ebro River Valley has been popular since before the Romans flourished. Basque natives speak the local Euskera dialect, which together with the unique gastronomy, climate and proximity to the sea, create a cultural identity and vibrant atmosphere unlike any other region in Spain.
