Your Destination —
There is a wide range of museums and historical sites to explore like the famous Guggenheim Museum or the vibrant square Plaza Nueva. In addition, Bilbao's many pedestrian streets make it easy to discover the city on foot. All you need to do is to find your favourite sites.
From the ultra-modern Conference Centre and Concert Hall Palacio Euskalduna Jauregia, walk east along the riverbank, which is littered with beautiful sculptures and some impressive modern architecture. You will pass the Guggenheim and Santiago Calatrava's stunning Zubi Zuri Footbridge, which spans the Nervión between the Guggenheim and the Ayuntamiento.
Your Hotel —
Opened in 1990, after a complete renovation of a historical building formerly occupied by a well known local newspaper, Ercilla Lopez de Haro has emerged as a stylish, boutique five star hotel, with an intriguing history.
Designer of the Guggenheain - Frank Gehry chose Ercilla Lopez de Haro as his home during the design process of what would later become one of the most visited and famous museums in the world and a landmark for Spain and tourists worldwide. The very first sketches for the Guggenheim Bilbao Museum with his first ideas for the site and structure were drawn on Ercilla Lopez de Haro letterhead stationery!
With an enviable central location, visits to the museums, art galleries and restaurants of the city are a breeze, and you can return after a long day exploring to an in room massage followed by a glass of champagne in the Moet & Chandon bar.
