About the tour

With this free walking tour you will be able to know the essence of the city, with suggestions to make the most of your stay in the capital of Euskadi. It is a free tour, without a pre-established price, so that you are the one who values ​​our work while you discover with me some of its most emblematic monuments.

We will start in the Plaza de España. It might seem like one more place, but no. It houses a peculiar detail that makes it very special ... Next to it we will cross Plaza de la Virgen Blanca, with its famous plant sculpture, where thousands of Vitorians celebrate the beginning of the festivities with the descent of Celedón, popular Alavés that has been flying from heaven. Do you know the origin of this curious character?

Strolling through the old town, you will discover why we prefer to call it the medieval Almond, and there we will walk guild streets and charming corners to the old 11th century Wall, which seems to be not from Vitoria ... but from Gasteiz. By the way, did you know that it is turned upside down?

At the top of the city we will be surprised by the color of the impressive murals that form this Painted City that is Vitoria-Gasteiz, and the Old Cathedral, of restoration 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 their scenarios!

In 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 Carlos V's ambassador built his "lime and song madness" on the same slope of the Medieval hill only to watch the sunset. 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 we will tell you!

A fun and entertaining visit in which you decide, in the end, the price you want to pay. And in addition to historical data and curiosities, you will take a whole series of tips to enjoy the city. Are you ready for this guruwalk?
