Visit The Spectacular Medieval Island Fortress

Head to the mystical land of San Juan de Gaztelugatxe, where the ancient stone bridges lead to a 10th-century hermitage perched atop the rugged Bay of Biscay. Recognizable to fans of the hit series Game of Thrones as Dragonstone, the true magic of Gaztelugatxe lies in the local legend — if you ring the church bell 3 times and make a wish, it will come true.

Explore the Beauty of Bilbao

The city's Old Town, with its narrow cobblestone streets & historic buildings, will offer a glimpse into Bilbao's storied past. Marvel at the Gothic structures, punctuated by colorful balconies with flowers. Indulge in a delightful lunch of Basque cuisine, all included in the package.

Visit Titanium-Clad Guggenheim Museum

After lunch, your next destination is the titanium-clad Guggenheim Museum, which was featured in the James Bond film, 'The World Is Not Enough'.
