Greenway of the Iron Mountains
Iron shaped the landscape, life and character of the Basque Country for centuries. Walking the Greenway of the Iron Mountains is an opportunity to learn about the roots of this territory, and the history behind the train that was the protagonist in its mining past. In this itinerary, we will enjoy nature and incredible landscapes, visiting small towns and charming villages, vestiges where iron was forged in another era.
In this proposal we will have the opportunity to get to know better Bilbao, its old town and its most representative corners; in addition to enjoying a unique experience in a Gastronomic Society or “txoko”. We will also have time to visit the international Guggenheim Museum.
A special stop will be the Vizcaya Bridge, or Hanging Bridge, the largest representative of the industrial era in Euskadi and declared a UNESCO cultural heritage in 2006.
