Fodor's Expert Review Azkuna Zentroa

Bilbao Arts/Performance Venue

In the early 20th century this was a municipal wine-storage facility used by Bilbao's Rioja wine barons. Now, the city-block-size, Philippe Starck–designed civic center is filled with shops, cafés, restaurants, movie theaters, swimming pools, fitness centers, and nightlife opportunities at the very heart of the city. Conceived as a hub for entertainment, culture, wellness, and civic coexistence, it added another star to Bilbao's cosmos of architectural and cultural offerings when it opened. The complex regularly hosts film festivals and art exhibitions, and it's a cozy place to take refuge on a rainy afternoon.
