Get Blown Away at the Guggenheim

Modern, mind bending, and mentally interactive, the Guggenheim Museum is one of the must-do experiences of Spain.

You could easily spend an hour getting lost in the beauty of the facade, with the monstrous tarantula, the skyscraper of a flowered dog, and the fact that the building looks like a series of cookie cutters someone has carefully stacked on top of itself.

This should give you a great clue as to the many outstanding exhibitions that lie inside. Find the Guggenheim centrally located in Bilbao, one of the up-and-coming cities of Spain.
