This will catch your eye when walking along the river. Nothing really to look at inside, but the building's facade is just beautiful.

This building really stands out against its surroundings, as you pass by along the river walk. Clearly art deco in style, the facade is stunning although the inside of the station is a bit of a disappointment.

beautiful art nuevo front in an more less unspectacular area. In my opinion enough when passing by on bridge to arriaga teatro not more - sorry for saying this.

I highly recommend a walking tour of Bilbao. It is a nice way to enjoy this city without hassling with the traffic. This site was included in our tour.

This is a very attractive and unusual old building. Its on the way from the town centre to the old part of the city so worth a stop on the way.

The Concordia train station has a handsome art-nouveau facade of wrought iron and tiles. It is used by Renfe Feve, part of Spain's national Renfe line, which has trains running west into Cantabria. The exterior of the building definitely affords a photo opportunity

I was very impressed by many of Bilbao's buildings, but this building's facade is one of the most beautiful i noticed. Beautiful design and colours from the Art Nouveau period!

We didn't actually travel from the station so cannot comment on functionality at all BUT the front of the station is worth a looksee as you make your way to the Old Town area.

I was deeply surprised by this beautiful railway station facade in downtown Bilbao. If seeing only a picture of it, I would locate it in southern Spain, not in Basque. The station is just by the riverfront, across the Arriaga theater and it dominates this...More

The tile work on the face of this station is truly unique and a little awe-inspiring. Even if you are not using the station for travel, it is still worth a visit and a photo opportunity to see it in person.
