Metro Bilbao (Basque Country - Spain) Bilbao, a small city in the Basque region, is proud of their subway system, not only because of its speed and efficiency, but also because of its design. Norman Foster, the architect who did the Reichtag in Berlin, the Gherkin in London, and the world's largest airport in Hong Kong, designed Bilbao's metro stations. The entrances are especially unique. Nicknamed “el Fosterito,” the entrances are glass round tubes that emerge to the street level.
This underground mertopolitan area is popularly known as the Greater Bilbao. The system is the fourth largest in Spain and has more than 43 kilometers of track and 40 stations. (Basque Country, Bizkaia, Bilbao, Underground)
BILBAO is an amazing city. The Zubizuri bridge, the Euskalduna Palace or the mind-bending Guggenheim Museum are some of the wonderful tourist attractions that shape the particular architectural style of Bilbao, setting for the James Bond film "The World is not Enough".
