Bilbao (the "hidden gem" of Northern Spain)

Home from a great 3 night trip in Bilbao Oct 2015 - our friends have visited Bilbao a number of times and so we had our very own tour guides.

We arrived in glorious sunshine on our first day, this shot is taken in the old town,  in the square known as Plaza Nueva. About a 5 min walk from the apartment we were staying in.
