Bilbao is the largest city in Northern Spain. It is a place that is steeped in culture, history, and beauty. The Museum of Fine Arts of Bilbao showcases some of the best works of towering figures like Goya, El Greco, Van Dyck, Gauguin, Sorolla, and Ensor.
It was opened in 1914, spurred by the donation of extensive art collections by several philanthropists. The place became critical to the development of the art community in the region. When the Civil War broke out, the works were transported elsewhere and had to be recovered after.
Extensions were built later on to house a growing collection and provide more services to visitors.Places nearby:
