Never did I know that Bilbao would be a Bond location two years after I had been there in August of 1997.

It was a nice surprise when I first saw The World Is Not Enough (1999) because I recognized myself as James Bond (Pierce Brosnan) walks towards the office where the Cigar Girl (Maria Grazia Cucinotta) is waiting for him.

I walked on the same street passing The Guggenheim Museum when I was there!

Other locations that was used for the filming of The World Is Not Enough and are worth visiting for all Bond travellers:

Bardenas Reales (Spain)
City of Baku (Azerbaijan)
Eilean Donan Castle (in Scotland)
Las Bardenas (Spain)
Las Majadas (Spain)
Les Grands Montets (France)
Maiden Tower (in Istanbul)
River Thames (in London)
Stowe House (in Buckinghamshire, England)
The O2 in London (previously the Millennium Dome)
