Bilbao, North Spain

Bilbao, the Phoenix city, once an industrial wasteland following the demise of its shipping and steel industries, is now an example of a thriving 21st century city built around the stunning center piece of the Guggenheim Museum. It's not all modernity though, there's a lovely Old Town and a gastronomic tradition for which the Basque country is duly famous.
