Historic Bilbao Free Tour
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.
"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 the VILLA DE 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 the said Bilbao composer, known as the 'Spanish Mozart'?
We will walk through the Jardines del Arenal , the gateway to the Old Town of Bilbao, a lively urban park full of surprises such as the Music Kiosk , a meeting place for the people of Bilbao. From this point, we will look out over the Nervión estuary, the backbone of the city.
Shall we continue? The church of San Nicolás awaits us, the Palacio de Yohn and the Plaza Nueva , a famous location for its 'pintxos' bars. History is important, but even more so 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 a detail for you and we will recommend traditional and modern places where you can have the best pintxos and other typical dishes during your visit.
We will walk through that Bilbao of the " seven streets " that houses centuries-old shops, vestiges of the port past, fragments of the old wall and emblems such as the Cathedral of Santiago , an obligatory step 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 Mercado de Ribera , a fantastic space where you can continue discovering Bilbao's gastronomy.
We will let ourselves be carried away by the course of the estuary, so linked to the history of the town and that will give us the opportunity to end the visit by talking about curiosities and many recommendations to continue enjoying the essentials of Bilbao.
Come discover this and much more.
We will wait for you!
