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.

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

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
