If you have a long weekend and you want to combine Spanish town, sea and village (well almost) Bilbao could be your Bocadillo. Culture in the city (Museo de Bellas Artes and other smaller museums), an atmospheric old town, beaches (Sopelana to name one of a number) and history (Guernica) can all be combined thanks to an excellent and cheap transport system. Oh yes, and the Guggenheim! Few places we've visited have such contrasts.
