Athletic Bilbao Opens New San Mames Stadium

Athletic Bilbao just opened their brand new 53,000+ stadium and it looks incredible. They built it right next door to where their previous stadium (Old San Mames which was almost 100 years old) was and this looks like a special place for a stadium to be. And even though Spain has been having some pretty serious financial struggles, the local Basque community contributed 52% of the cost for the €211 million stadium. Between this new stadium and the legendary Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, the architecture scene there seems to be on point. I also hear the food is incredible in Bilbao. Might need to make a trip there at some point…
