Tour description

The most entertaining and closest tour to discover Vitoria!

Route through the Medieval Quarter and Ensanche, with history, legends and curiosities for its charming corners and most emblematic monuments, with recommendations and suggestions so that you make the most of your stay. Let yourself be guided by Koldo, the most experienced guide! And the nicest;)

We will start in the Plaza de España . It might seem like just another square, but no. It houses a peculiar detail that makes it very special ... Next to it we will see the Plaza de la Virgen Blanca , with its famous plant sculpture, where we celebrate the start of the festivities with the descent of Celedón, a popular Alava that comes flying from the sky. . Can you believe it?

We will walk the union streets of the Old Town and you will discover why we prefer to call it the medieval Almond, and between charming corners we will cross the old 11th century Wall , which ... does it seem to be the other way around? At the top of the city you will be surprised by the color of the impressive murals that make up this Painted City that is Vitoria-Gasteiz, and the Old Cathedral, restored but "open" by works and inspiration of the novelist Ken Follet for his saga "Los Pillars of the Earth ". Speaking of books, have you read "The Silence of the White City"? We will go through some of its scenarios!

In the Plaza del Machete , where the Attorney General saw his neck in danger if he did not fulfill his mission, we will admire the Renaissance palace of Villa Suso , whose owner the ambassador of Carlos V built his "madness of lime and stone." We will finish in front of the church of San Miguel , where the White Virgin will tell us that it snowed in Vitoria on August 5 ... Come and I'll tell you!

Koldo es un encanto. Fuimos con un bebé de 7 meses y en todo momento estuvo pendiente de que estuviéramos a gusto y siguiéramos bien al grupo. Toda la info es muy interesante si, como nosotros, nunca has estado en Vitoria-Gasteiz. Lo recomendaremos sin duda a nuestros amigos que quieran visitar la ciudad.
