Tour description

You don't know Vitoria? This is the tour you need.

Because? Because you will see more places than on any other tour, you will have a good time and you will see the city not only in its historical aspect (which you will see in most), but also the modern area and also the noble area of ​​the city....

We will not have fratricidal fights like in some famous television series, but I will tell you about the burulleros who worked in the city, why Ken Follet has a statue in the Old Cathedral or why the Casa del Cordón has such a small door... .

I will also tell you about the "bloody" machete in the Plaza del Machete , the stories surrounding the White Virgin or why Álava "has a hole in the middle"...

And as a culmination, we will visit one of the most stately and spectacular areas, where the majestic Ajuria Enea Palace is located, the center of democratic power today.

Some of the stops included:

  • Plaza de la Virgen Blanca (Battle of Vitoria Statue. Meeting point)

Ancient power (Casco Viejo):

  • Burullería Square
  • old cathedral
  • Escoriaza-Esquivel Palace
  • Montehermoso Palace
  • Cord House
  • Machete Square
  • San Miguel's Church

Current power (Zona Nueva. Ensanche):

  • City hall
  • Deputation
  • New Cathedral
  • Ajuria Enea


If you want to learn these and other curiosities, and perhaps some jokes about Basques, don't miss the opportunity..., "Vitoria is coming"!
