If you visit the Basque country there are some other great cities apart from Bilbao that you can visit like Vitoria-Gasteiz, capital of the province of Álava that hosts the Basque government and parliament. It is a city that has been through an intense history and it is definitely worth it to visit its monumental historic city center.

Pamplona, the historical capital city of Navarre, is worldwide famous for the San Fermín festival where the main attraction is the running of bulls through the streets of the city. It also has a great historic-artistic heritage including some notable churches and other civil architecture buildings.

San-Sebastián, capital of the province of Guipuscoa, is an important and beautiful seaside resort of the Bay of Biscay. It hosts each year the San Sebastián International Film Festival and will become, in 2016, the European capital of culture with Wroclaw.
