Description

If you are visiting the Basque Country and you fancy wandering through its streets, we welcome you to join us on our Free Tour Bilbao Imprescindible. A unique chance to explore the city as a local!

Our historic tour through the city starts at one of Bilbao´s most emblematic buildings. Standing at the entrance of Plaza Arriaga you will contemplate the Arraiga Theatre, with a bourgeois feel about it and modelled on the Paris Opera House. Our next stop is Plaza Nueva, a unique town square and a site worth viewing for its beauty evoking old Europe and featuring a neoclassical design. 

The heart of Bilbao which resurfaced after the catastrophic floodings has been restored making it nowadays a renowned shopping area. Its vibrant streets are lined with places to enjoy a rest like the square Plaza Unamuno which commemorates the life of the philosopher and writer. A great way to learn about the many stories surrounding the city´s old historic quarter. 

The best way to get to know Bilbao´s daily way of life is by paying a visit to the heart of its shopping district. The market place, Mercado de la Ribera is a major attraction for visitors because of its incredible building and lively atmosphere.
