Bilbao. San Sebastian. Three days. What would you recommend?

Obviously, there's the Guggenheim in Bilbao, but what else is there? I'm interested in hidden architectural gems, weird modern/postmodern buildings (if there are any), things off the beaten trail, great places to eat (everything from budget tapas to uber-swanky restaurants), local oddities, places related to local folklore/myth, art galleries, particular places/areas significant in Basque culture, places of significant literary interest, anywhere that you'd never heard of before visiting the area but which you would unfailingly recommend to other people.
Obviously, that's rather broad. But I'm sure that you're up to it ...
