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 worthy of this mention.

ESSENTIAL is … jumping over the estuary, leaving the Casco de la Villa behind and following in the footsteps that Bilbao undertook towards a spectacular transformation that has not stopped to this day. We will understand how its industrial past, linked to iron, blossomed 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 that is where the most exclusive shops, 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 Bilbao, Plaza Moyúa, the heart of Gran Vía, or the Provincial Council, Campos Elíseos Theatre, etc.

ESSENTIAL is… following the path of art that draws 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 Puente de la Salve, the Zubi-Zuri bridge or the Iberdrola Tower.

We will finish the experience looking again at the Ría we jumped on at the beginning, now captivated by the essence of the "Bilbao effect".
