What to see and do in Bilbao?

Bilbao is a charming city located in northern Spain, known for its rich history and culture. It is located on the banks of the Nervion River, which makes it a place full of life and movement. Its architecture is impressive, especially the famous Guggenheim Museum, designed by Frank Gehry. But Bilbao not only has modern buildings; it also has the Casco Viejo, a neighborhood full of tradition where you can enjoy pintxos and wine in the oldest bars of the city.

Guggenheim Museum is an architectural masterpiece designed by the famous architect Frank Gehry. Located on the banks of the Nervion River. This museum has become a cultural and tourist icon not only for the city of Bilbao, but also for the whole of Spain. The building is composed of curved and twisted shapes that reflect the sunlight and the surrounding water, creating an impressive visual effect.

Miguel de Unamuno Square is an emblematic place in the city of Bilbao. This square, located in the Casco Viejo of the city, owes its name to the famous Spanish writer and philosopher Miguel de Unamuno. The square has a statue of Unamuno himself that dominates the space and makes it an ideal place to sit and rest or enjoy the lively atmosphere.

La Ribera Market is one of the largest and oldest markets in Spain. With a total area of 10,000 square meters, this market houses a wide variety of stalls offering fresh and local products such as fruits, vegetables, meats, seafood and cheeses.

 

Itinerary

We will start the free guided tour of Bilbao in front of the central Arriaga Theater, dedicated to a local composer known as “the Spanish Mozart”. Nearby we find the church of San Nicolás and the famous Plaza Nueva, where one of the most famous “bilbainadas” was popularized. By the way, do you know what this term refers to?

Our free tour through Bilbao will continue next to the Begoña stairs, 316 steps (don’t worry, we won’t climb them) with a very particular history. Right next to it is the Miguel de Unamuno Square, named in honour to the Bilbao writer who is credited with the famous phrase “venceréis, pero no convenceréis” (you will win, but you will not convince). Did you know that, according to some sources, the writer never actually uttered these words?

We will continue this free guided tour through the “Botxo”, as the people of Bilbao affectionately call their city, in the area of the seven streets, one of the most historic places in the Old Town of Bilbao.

After learning the history of other emblematic monuments such as the cathedral of Santiago, we will head to the banks of the Nervión estuary to visit the famous Ribera Market, which holds a European record. We will finish the walk next to the Concordia Station, one of the most beautiful in the city.
