Fodor's Review

Officially titled Centro-Museo Vasco de Arte Contemporáneo, this former bus station was opened in 2002 by King Juan Carlos, who called it "the third leg of the Basque art triangle, along with the Bilbao Guggenheim and San Sebastián's (now closed) Chillida Leku." The museum's permanent collection—including 20th- and 21st-century paintings and sculptures by Jorge Oteiza, Chillida, Agustín Ibarrola, and Nestor Basterretxea, among many others—makes it one of Spain's

finest treasuries of contemporary art.
