SPAIN Day 13

Bilbao has, surprisingly enough, more to offer than just the Guggenheim. The AlhondigaBilbao centre (www.alhondigabilbao.com ) we discovered late at night. It houses a cinema, cafeteria, media library, workshops, courses, conferences, etc, etc.

It is difficult to describe. It is a massive indoor space that feels like you are in an outside courtyard.

 

Yes, it makes no sense. One half has a four storey high ceiling with a gigantic screen suspended from above and two spotlights you can stand in if you feel like you need some light in your life. J

The other half has a low ceiling and is ‘held up’ by pillars decorated with various styles. Have a look.

The outside sports a beautifully decorated sidewalk and incredible public artworks.
