Located in the northern Spain, Bilbao is the largest city in the Basque Country with a population of roughly 350,000. The city is located just 10 miles south of the Bay of Biscay, and the urban centre is surrounded by two lush green mountain ranges. Founded in the early 14th century, the city has a long history and rich culture.
Bilbao benefits from a mild oceanic climate, with temperatures that rarely drop below freezing in winter and rarely rise above 35 °C in summer. Regular rainfall throughout the year, without extended periods of summer drought maintain the lush, green landscapes that Bilbao is famed for.
