Bilbao has a humid marine climate. The westerly winds and the sea are moderating influences that bring mild temperatures and create a temperate climate all year round. The average temperatures are 8ºC in winter and 20ºC in summer.
As in all areas of the Basque Country Autonomous Region, in Bilbao, there are two official languages: Basque and Spanish.
After years of financial uncertainty, Bilbao has once again become a dynamic city, full of amenities and focused on environmental and urban regeneration. With its lands freed from the old industrial settlements, the city is now undergoing a new physical transformation, becoming more and more appealing to visitors. The impressive Guggenheim Museum and the Euskalduna Palace, a conference and music centre have become the icons of the new Bilbao, a city that is gradually regaining space and handing it back to the people. Don’t forget to visit the Museum of Fine Arts, have a walk around the Old Town, and make a quick trip to the villages by the sea, such as Plentzia. Lekeitio, Bermeo, Urdaibai…
Bilbao´s gastronomic culture lies at the heart of the city's customs. Bilbao hosts plenty of top quality restaurants offering the best of Basque culinary arts. An abundant variety of high quality local ingredients have favoured Bilbao's cuisine, which has made a name for itself the world over.
A passion for food is reflected in one of the most popular Basque customs: the "txikiteo" or "poteo", especially common in Bilbao.: while you drink a "txikito" -small glass of wine- or "zurito" -small glass of beer-, you can see, at certain times of the day, a number of city dwellers going from one bar to another, where they enjoy their "pintxo", appetizers made up of various ingredients. Pintxos can vary from a traditional Spanish “tortilla” to more modern “croquetas” made of apples and pistachios.
