Palacio de Euskalduna
Palacio de Euskalduna Review
In homage to the astilleros Euskalduna (Basque Country shipbuilders) who operated shipyards here beside the Euskalduna bridge into the late 20th century, this music venue and convention hall resembles a rusting ship, a stark counterpoint to Frank Gehry's shimmering titanium fantasy just up the Nervión. Designed by architects Federico Soriano and Dolores Palacios, Euskalduna opened in 1999 and is Bilbao's main opera venue and home of the Bilbao Symphony Orchestra. Free guided tours are offered on Saturday at noon on a first-come, first-serve basis. Weekday tours (€4 per person) can also be booked ahead.
