If you are planning to go to Artxanda, which you should even just for the wonderful views of Bilbao, take the funicular. It's quick, 3 minutes, and fun to do something different.

It’s worth the walk to take the funicular up to Artxanda and view this very compact city from above. There is a pleasant walk around and many photo opportunities whilst up there. Facilities and resturant at top great place for a picnic.

No idea how this was built in 1915. Amazing engineering. A great thing to do when in Bilbao. Even on a cloudy day we loved our trip to the top

For E3.25 for a return ticket and an hour of your time, this is well worth doing just to see the views. If, like us, your experience of Bilbao is limited to the bit between the old town and the Guggenheim, then you will be...More
