Tour description

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 Casco de la Villa behind and following the steps that Bilbao undertook towards a spectacular transformation that has not stopped to this day. We will understand how its industrial past, linked to iron, hatched 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 join us?

ESSENTIAL is... entering the commercial and financial center of the city, El Ensanche, also known as the "Golden Mile" because it is there where the most exclusive stores, luxury homes, financial headquarters and business offices are located. We will discover buildings such as the Alhóndiga (Azkuna Center), epicenter of the cultural life of the people of Bilbao, Plaza Moyúa, heart of the Gran Vía, or the Provincial Council, Campos Elíseos Theater, etc.

ESSENTIAL is... to follow the path of art that traces its itinerary through the Museum of Fine Arts and leads 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 looking out over the estuary over which we jumped at the beginning, now captivated by the essence of the “Bilbao effect”.
