The Basque country is a region unlike any other
Our 2017-18 school year concludes in one of Europe’s most scenic countries, and, perhaps more importantly, one of its friendliest. Gifted architects such as Antoni Gaudí have crafted many wondrous masterpieces throughout Spain, and many stand side-by-side with well-preserved Roman ruins. The Basque city of Bilbao -which will serve as our host city- knows a thing or two about gorgeous design, with its Frank Gehry-designed Guggenheim Museum drawing tourists from across the world to admire its titanium exterior and galleries filled with modern and contemporary art. But modern art is certainly not for everyone, and those students with a penchant for the old will feel right at home in the shops and restaurants that line Bilbao’s casco viejo (old quarter).
