Tour description

“Ongi etorri!” means Welcome! Join our free tour and immerse yourself with us in the culture and traditions of the city, visiting the most iconic monuments of the old town of BILBAO, because here we are villains!


We will begin the free tour of Bilbao in front of one of the most notable buildings in the town: the Arriaga Theater , did you know that it is dedicated to said Bilbao composer, called the 'Spanish Mozart'?

We will walk through the Arenal Gardens , the gateway to the Old Town of Bilbao, a lively urban park full of surprises such as the Music Kiosk , a meeting place for Bilbao residents. From this point, we will look out over the Nervión estuary, the backbone of the city.

Shall we continue? The church of San Nicolás, the Yohn Palace and the Plaza Nueva await us, a famous location for its pintxos bars. The history is important but even more so are the anecdotes and curiosities that gave life to its streets and countrymen, some as illustrious as Miguel de Unamuno or Amadeo de Saboya. Do you know that he starred in one of the most unforgettable “bilbainadas”?

We know that gastronomy interests you, that's why we have prepared something for you and during your visit we will recommend traditional and modern places where you can have the best pintxos and other typical dishes.

We will walk through Bilbao of the “ seven streets ” that houses centuries-old businesses, vestiges of the port's past, fragments of the old wall and emblems such as the Cathedral of Santiago , an obligatory stop on the northern route of the Camino. Although in Bilbao we have two cathedrals... Do you know which one is the other?

An obligatory stop on our tourist tour is the Ribera Market , a fantastic space where you can continue discovering Bilbao's gastronomy.

We will let ourselves be carried away by the channel of the estuary, so linked to the history of the town and which will give us the opportunity to end the visit talking about curiosities and many recommendations to continue enjoying the essentials of Bilbao.

Come discover this and much more.

We will wait for you!
