Bilbao Essential Free Tour - WITH RADIO GUIDE INCLUDED!
SPAIN FREE TOURS ® is a young, dynamic and expanding company. We are a team of tourism professionals and guides with extensive background in culture, history and art. We work every day from our headquarters in Valencia to become a reference in tour guides services in Spain.
In 2018 Bilbao was declared “Best European City”. Do you want to know why?
A tour designed for you to discover and enjoy the ESSENTIALS that make Bilbao such a special city and deserving of this mention.
ESSENTIAL is… jumping over the estuary, leaving the Town Center behind and following the steps that Bilbao took towards a spectacular transformation that has not stopped to this day. We will understand how its industrial past, linked to iron, emerged into a unique model of an avant-garde city, without losing sight of the Basque charisma. Don Diego López de Haro, founder of the town, is waiting for us to show us the way. Will you accompany us?
ESSENTIAL is… to enter the commercial and financial center of the city, El Ensanche, also known as the “Golden Mile” because that is where the most exclusive stores, luxury homes, financial headquarters and business offices are located. We will discover buildings such as the Alhóndiga (Centro Azkuna), the epicenter of the cultural life of Bilbao residents, Plaza Moyúa, the heart of Gran Vía, or the Provincial Council, Campos Elíseos Theatre, etc.
ESSENTIAL is… to follow the art path that traces its itinerary through the Museum of Fine Arts and takes us to the Guggenheim. From there we will enjoy a fascinating panoramic view of the contemporary city with examples such as: the Salve Bridge, the Zubi-Zuri bridge or the Iberdrola Tower.
We will end the experience by looking back into the estuary over which we jumped at the beginning, now captivated by the essence of the “Bilbao effect”.
