Guggenheim Museum, Bilbao

Highly recommended
The Guggenheim Museum is Bilbao's star architectural attraction. The building designed by Frank O. Gehry (winner of the Pritzker Prize for Architecture in 1989), is considered a masterpiece with its amazing half-sculpted curves and walls of yellow limestone, glass and titanium with their extraordinary play of light. Occupying an area of 10 000m2, it houses one of the greatest collections of 20C art in the world, from classic avant-garde to abstract expressionism, Pop Art, and more modern trends.
