The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao is a museum of modern and contemporary art designed by Canadian-American architect Frank Gehry, and located in Bilbao, Basque Country, Spain. The museum was inaugurated on 18 October 1997 by King Juan Carlos I of Spain, with an exhibition of 250 contemporary works of art. Built alongside the Nervion River, which runs through the city of Bilbao to the Cantabrian Sea, it is one of several museums belonging to the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation and features permanent and visiting exhibits of works by Spanish and international artists. It is one of the largest museums in Spain. One of the most admired works of contemporary architecture, the building has been hailed as a “signal moment in the architectural culture”, because it represents “one of those rare moments when critics, academics, and the general public were all completely united about something”, according to architectural critic Paul Goldberger. The museum was the building most frequently named as one of the most important works completed since 1980 in the 2010 World Architecture Survey among architecture experts.
13:00 – Lunch at the Nerua Restaurant (1 Michelin star)
If eating in a museum should be seen as something special, doing so at the Guggenheim Bilbao is already a big deal, since the uniqueness of the space has repercussions on the entire experience.
Nerua, which takes its name from the Latin term by which the Nervión estuary was known, where fresh and salt water converge, reproduces this fusion of fluids in its own philosophy, as chef Josean Alija seeks to rescue the flavors of Basque cuisine from innovation, enriching the proposal with dishes that dazzle with their backgrounds and vegetable nuances. They themselves say that their cuisine… “is born in the orchards, in the sea and in the surrounding farms”.

The Bardenas Reales is an extense, semi-desert like, unpopulated area covering 41,845 hectares in the SE of Navarra. It possesses a characteristic landscape with an abrupt relief, and is replete with mesa-shaped highs (cabezos), plains, hidden ravines… The climate is characterized by hot summers, cold winters and little rainfall (350 l/m2 ). In general terms the Bardenas can be divided into three large areas. La Bardena Blanca is the central depression, the terrain is often whitened, bare and desert-like in appearance. El Plano is an almost flat, elevated alluvial plateau, whose soil originates from the Aragón river. La Negra is characterized by large elevated flatter areas caused by horizontal limestone strata; the slopes are covered by pines and kermes oak and the dark appearance of the terrain has no doubt given rise to its place name. These lands were historically heritage of the Kings of Navarre, but from the 9th century onwards certain local usage rights were granted. Finally, in 1705, the exclusive rights were handed over to twenty two local entities, known as “congozantes” who share the rights of common usage: Arguedas, Buñuel, Cabanillas, Cadreita, Caparroso, Carcastillo, Corella, Cortes, Falces, Funes, Fustiñana, Marcilla, Mélida, Milagro, Peralta, Santacara, Tudela, Valtierra, Villafranca, the Valleys of Roncal and Salazar and La Oliva Monastery. These entities make up the Bardenas Reales Community, the Local Organisation which governs the area.
