The oldest building still in use in the world is the Pantheon in Rome. It was built in 117 AD, nearly 2000 years old. It must look a bit odd when it was first completed. The building is round and has an enormous dome on top. Looking at its exterior now it may not look much, but it is still one of the most admired buildings in the world, mainly because of its age and the construction technique used in the building. I wonder if any of our iconic buildings today would survive as long. Would they still appear as aesthetically pleasing as they are now?
 
The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao is such an iconic building today. It has become the landmark of the city of Bilbao. Just like the Tower Bridge to London, the Statue of Liberty to New York, and the Eiffel Tower to Paris. In this sense the Guggenheim Museum of Bilbao is a big success. Nobody can take that away. Not only has the building shown us the use of new construction technique and the use of new material, it was also completed on time and within budget. I was not sure how to look at the building before my visit. But after looking at it, I think it is a great building and a piece of architectural art.

  • JerryDaperro Jerry Daperro at N/A Sardanas. I been to many parts of Spain before. I even pass though the Basque country once before but I never have the time to see the place in detail. I was a surprise for me this time. The Green Spain is so much different from other parts of Spain. One of my discovery this time is the bar food, Pintxos. We love them very much. We discovered the bistro in the Guggenheim museum is very good and the prices are reasonable, but you have to book a table before hand. We also enjoy many of your dishes. We ate very well in SanSabestian. We then travelled to Picos de Europa. I love the Asturians and the Cantabrians people as well. They are friendly people who are very proud of their culture and traditions. Love their costumes as well. We had a good time in Northern Spain and recommend it to anybody. 5 months ago
