Tour description

The tour that I present to you is attractive for several reasons: I try to make a route that is close and enjoyable and, above all, designed for the enjoyment of your stay at the Green Capital 2012. An itinerary designed from passion and vocation. A tour from a historical point of view with recommendations and anecdotes.

I like to remember the past but also talk about the current situation in Vitoria-Gasteiz. This city has become a point of reference by recognizing it as EUROPEAN GREEN CAPITAL 2012 or WORLD GREEN CAPITAL in 2019 . In the coming months, Vitoria-Gasteiz will be certified as the first urban ecotourism destination nationwide.

We will travel to the year of its foundation without forgetting the years of expansion and development in the 20th century. The Celedón, the deck, the White Virgin and the White City, the murals and the green ring ... I could tell you dozens of words but I don't want you to read them, I want you to live it, enjoy it and walk through it with me.


Some of the sites we will see during the tour:

  1. Plaza of the White Virgin
  2. Spain Square
  3. celedon
  4. Villa Suso Palace
  5. The Arquillos
  6. Machete Square
  7. Cuchillería Street (Casa del Cordón).
  8. Montehermoso Palace
  9. Plaza Burullería (buildings from the 15th and 16th centuries)
  10. Sometimes, depending on multiple factors, if the majority of the group wishes, we enter the Memorial of the Victims of Terrorism.

I encourage you to visit the city with a Tourism Technician, from Vitoria and a lover of the city.

The tour will take place with a minimum number of people.

I like that you value my work, so I encourage you to thank me with your contribution if you liked the tour. If you liked the recommended contribution is about €9 -€10 p/p.
