Bilbao is best known these days for the gleaming, titanium clad Guggenheim Museum designed by Frank Gehry. Yet, this financial and industrial center of the Basque region in Spain retains medieval architectural charm in its “Casco Viejo“, or Old Town. The Santiago Cathedral was built in the 15th century on older foundations dating to 1300 or earlier. The narrow cobblestone streets are lined with shops and restaurants featuring fresh seafood from the Bay of Biscay and Atlantic Ocean.
