Guggenheim, Zumaia’s Flysch and Getaria

The perfect plan doesn’t ex… or does it? Did somebody say contemporary art, Basque Coastal Cliffs and Small Fishing village, all in one day?

What will we visit?

GUGGENHEIM MUSEUM IN BILBAO

Contemporary art is not for everyone. Neither is the Guggenheim Museum. If you enjoy The Sistine Chapel and Las Meninas by Diego Velázquez but Jackson Pollock or Mark Rothko are indifferent to you, this tour is not for you. This might be of interest to you.

If you are by chance a fan of New York City’s MOMA or Center Pompidou in Paris, then you are in luck! This tour is definitely for you.

What a grand dog house they’ve constructed for the dog, said by the people of Bilbao. The dog house, being the Guggenheim Museum, has an enormous bush carved into the shape of a dog waiting to greet you at the front door. Jeff Koons, author of this design, names the bush “Puppy”.

Frank Gehry, architect of the Museum designed the building to be covered with titanium and limestone, structured like a flower or a ship, depending on where one looks. Let the interior of the building be discovered by you.

ZUMAIA’S FLYSCH: GEOLOGICAL PECULIARITY

Zumaia’s Flysch is hugely spectacular and simply enlightening.

Begin your morning by walking through the deep and tranquil formations of the seaside Flysch cliffs: the scenery depicts an episode of Game of Thrones, yet it is a natural work of art, with infinite geological value, we call it “an open book.” A demonstration of Earth’s evolution, 66 million years to be exact!

Normally this attraction doesn’t draw too much attention, besides the seagulls of course. The Flysch tour has not ceased to surprise its viewers since minute 1.

GETARIA: THE BEST GRILLED FISH

Which village has the best grilled fish in the world? Getaria. In the whole world you say? In a small particular coastal town minutes away from San Sebastian? Yes. And if you don’t believe us, come have a look for yourself, we will take you along the narrow village streets, lined with open grills facing the spectators.

The first man to successfully circumnavigate the world, Portuguese Captain Magellan, right? Nope, it was Juan Sebastián Elcano, Basque navigator from Getaria! We tend to spend some time enlightening guests with the crazed adventure of Elcano, who arrived to navigate his way around the world. Don’t worry, it’s a fun conversation, you won’t fall asleep.

Cristobal Balenciaga was also born here. Anything else you might think? Of course! Tiny narrow streets filled with small delicatessen shops, and txakoli of course. Did anybody say Txakoli?
