About the tour

During more than seven centuries of history, Bilbao has been expanding to be ultimately named the Best European City in 2018. Do you know what makes it so special?

Nowadays, Bilbao is worldwide known for the evolution of its architecture since the opening of the Guggenheim Museum in 1997. But imagine, Bilbao has not always looked so avant-garde. During our Antique Bilbao Free Tour, you will discover how the city has built up from the foundation.

So let’s take a closer look.

Casco Viejo (Old Town), also known as Las Siete Calles ("The Seven Streets") for understandable reasons, is the origin of the city. Our tour along the Antique Bilbao, will reveal to you the origin of these narrow streets and the most popular spots near them: La Plaza Nueva, El Mercado de la Ribera, La Catedral de Santiago and la Plaza Unamuno.

Do you want to know more about its diversity?

It is precisely Miguel de Unamuno, one of the greatest personalities originating in Bilbao, that has left his imprint strongly engraved in our city. But he is not the only remarkable one. Explore how other personalities that gave a name to the streets and squares of Bilbao have been essential for the history and development of our beloved city.

Let me tell you, there’s a reason why our tour starts on Plaza Circular de Bilbao, in front of the Don Diego Lopez de Haro statue. This illustrious Lord of Biscay founded the Villa of Bilbao in 1300, which became the city of Bilbao as we know it today.

Now, it’s your turn. Get to know what are pintxos, why we say apa to greet or why Carolina is the most popular pastry from Bilbao. Sign up for the Free Tour and discover the Antique Bilbao with our Local Guides! If you would like to see more of modern Bilbao take a look at our Free Tour Cosmopolitan Bilbao!

Interesting tour - I'd been in Bilbao for a few days so it was good to find out about places I'd walked past and not really paid attention to
