Bilbao's main thoroughfare was the estuary, sometimes flat and calm, at other times wild and strong. Life has progressed over the centuries on the shores of this estuary, expanding into the surrounding area, and the buildings along its banks are testament to this growth.
We'll take a look back at the history of Bilbao and its most iconic towns on this fun and original tour.
