Fodor's Review

Officially named the Centro-Museo Vasco de Arte Contemporáneo, this former bus station was reopened as a museum in 2002 by former 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.
