Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Bilbao has undergone an amazing rejuvenation in the past few years, becoming an international center of art and culture, and its tourist industry is booming. A new airport terminal and improved public transport have helped make the city and surrounding area a more appealing and convenient destination for travelers. 'El Goog', as the Basques call Frank Gehry's titanium wonder, was meant to attract attention, and it has succeeded beyond anyone's wildest dreams. But there's more to Bilbao than the Guggenheim Museum, and there's much, much more to the Basques, Europe's oldest people. Cadogan takes you through their stunning habitat of velvet green mountains, immaculate villages, vineyards, and ancient holy places. This first ever guide to the entire Basque country (including both the Spanish and French sides of the border), gives you the lowdown on the Basques'history, culture, ancient language, festivals, and explores the dramatic vistas of the Pyrenees. With Cadogan's expert guidance, visit vibrant Vittoria and live it up in the glittering resort of Biarritz. Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE_book_new_1860114008
