Inaugurated in the summer of 2011 by Queen Sofia of Spain, the Balenciaga Museum is a trove for the fashion-obsessed. It shows the work of Balenciaga, a mentor for such greats as Dior, Ungaro and de Givenchy. Displays include some of his most stunning gowns, as well as accessories and sketches from his long and illustrious career (the impressive archive the museum is drawing from has more than 1,000 pieces). Many of the outstanding items are dresses worn by Princess Grace of Monaco. The town of Getaria (Balenciaga’s hometown) is located is about half-an-hour drive from Bilbao.
