Bilbao sits at the bottom of a valley, surrounded by the slopes of Mount Artxandra ('Monte Archandra' in Spanish). From the summit of this mountain, you are awed by the spectacular panoramas of Bilbao's urban landscape. Here you can also find lovely areas for taking a walk and admiring the views. Mount Artxandra can be reached by a cable car that leaves from Plaza del Funicular and only takes three minutes to travel through the hillside of the Arangoiti district to the top.
