Bilbao sits on Spain's northern coast in the Basque region near the border with France. It is the most important port in Spain. Bilbao is home to the new Guggenheim Museum, probably the most important architectural statement made during the last half-century, which stands above the banks of Nervian River, with curves of gleaming titanium shining in the sun. This amazing artwork houses some of the greatest modern art, including important works by Miro, Matisse, Chagall and Picasso. Also worth seeing is the Museum of Fine Arts to complement the experience at Guggenheim. The city of Bilbao has taken care to preserve the colourful Basque heritage. 16th century may be explored in the Gothic Barrio. The notable landmarks of the old city include the 14th century Gothic-style Cathedral of Santiago, Plaza Nueva (19th century), and Renaissance-style churches of San Nicholas, San Antonio and Santos Juanes.
Established as a settlement of ironworkers and mariners, the city prospered in textile trade in the 16th century and in trading with the American colonies of Spain in the 18th century. It was besieged 4 times during Carlist Wars.
