Things to do Modern Bilbao Free Walking Tour
Modern Bilbao Free Walking Tour: come with us and explore Bilbao´s Guggenheim, the most Modernist and avant-garde area and take a stroll around the main must-see monuments and spots.
Our Spanish speaking guide will highlight all aspects and fascinating features of these places and provide us with an explanation on how Bilbao has evolved into a symbol of avant-garde architecture in Spain.
The itinerary that takes us in and around Modernist Bilbao begins at the well-known Arriaga Theatre and continues as far as the Bailén skyscraper, a very striking structure where we will stop at before reaching Concordia Station. The walk continues around the area located close to the Guggenheim passing the Sociedad Bilbaína building and the Abando Railway Station which features the city´s famous large stained-glass window.
There is also time set aside for a stop at Plaza Circular, one of the most centrally located squares which leads into the Gran Vía de Don Diego López de Haro where we will find the statue of this magnate known as ´Señor de Vizcaya´.
Discover some of the most interesting monuments in Bilbao like the Diputación Floral, the Guridi Building, the Champs Elysees Theatre or the Chávarri Palace, the latter located in the Alameda Rekalde.
To be sure not to end the tour without having entirely soaked up Bilbao´s avant-garde culture, our guide will show us to Plaza Euskadi, a small green oasis located between tall buildings and will disclose some hints on the Bilbao Fine Arts Museum. To end on a high note, marvel at the Zubi Zuri bridge from a certain distance and be totally amazed by the Guggenheim Museum, a symbol of modern Bilbao which has a giant surface spread over 24.000 square metres of pure art and titanium sheets mixed in a spectacular enclave.
Explore a city showcasing a carefree and innovative attitude on this Modern Bilbao Free Walking Tour, a tour through the main must-see avant-garde places.
