A great tourist option

One thing that has helped transform Bilbao into the great metropolis it is today has to be the metro system. Any self-respecting city has a subway nowadays, and the Bilbao Metro project was started over twenty-five years ago, when the Provincial Council of Bizkaia realized how chaotic the metropolitan area was becoming. The first subway construction plan was approved in 1977, but it wasn't until 1987 when the Basque Government finally agreed to finance the construction of the Bilbao Metro.

In 1988, an international design competition was held, and work began a year later. It was a stressful process, but today, the metro is the easiest, cheapest and fastest way of getting around Bilbao. It was designed by the English architect Norman Foster, one of the most important and innovative architects of our times. The project won the 1998 Brunel Railway Architecture Prize, for the entire metro and in particular Sarriko station. Foster's basic idea is the integration between architecture and engineering. Not everyone liked the controversial mixture of glass canopies and steel, but the Bilbao Metro is very easy to use, and there are stations all over the city.
