Photographer's Note

The Conference Centre and Concert Hall inaugurated in 1999 is yet another landmark, second only to Gehry΄s Guggenheim Museum, of the transformation process currently under way in Bilbao and where a number of infrastructures and buildings designed by internationally renown architects such as Calatrava with his new airport terminal, Foster with the Subway, Pelli, Isozaki, etc. can be seen.

This building is considered to be one of the most outstanding contemporary works carried out by Spanish architects and resembles the last vessel ever to be built on the site of what was formerly the Euskalduna shipyard.

The photo is the wall that is nearest the river mouth.

Besides the building you can find the popular crane Carola.

You can go for a walk near the river mouth, from the City Hall to the Maritim Museum and its crane Carola; passing by the Guggenheim Museum and the Euskalduna Conference Centre.

El Palacio de Congresos y de la Mϊsica Euskalduna diseρado por los arquitectos Soriano y Palacios fue inagurado en 1999, es otro de los edificios singulares, junto con el Museo Guggenheim de Frank Gehry; que dan forma a la transformaciσn que se estα llevando a cabo en Bilbao.

El edificio se encuentra en los terrenos que anteriormente ocupaban los Astilleros Euskalduna, y en parte representa un buque; con sus paredes "oxidadas", y su quilla apuntando a la rνa.

Se puede realizar un bonito paseo a lo largo de la rνa, paseando desde el puente del Ayuntamiento, hasta el Museo Guggenheim, continuando hasta el Palacio Euskalduna y llegando finalmente al Museo Marνtimo y la Carola.
