Bilbao is perhaps one of the most underrated cities in Spain. This stunning city is home to a plethora of shops, restaurants, and museums – most impressively, the undeniably gorgeous Guggenheim Museum.
Finding somewhere to park in a metropolitan area in Spain can be daunting as they often have a reputation for being somewhat unsafe. Although I’m certain the Bilbao is no different to the other large Spanish cities, we felt extremely comfortable spending 2 nights, and even leaving the van unattended for a full day in Bilbao.
The location of this spectacular park up is slightly removed from the city centre, however, it certainly boasts a panoramic view. The view not only captures the entire cite, but also positions the Guggenheim front and centre. It is essentially the perfect advertisement for Bilbao – and we were sold!
Unfortunately, this spot has almost no facilities nearby… except bins. So staying in this spot for more than a couple of days is not advised. Furthermore, the 4G signal was rather poor – so much so that Netflix buffered quite significantly.
