Tour description

Meet the most amazing legends of Bilbao touring the Biscayan capital with this free tour. A route full of mystery and intrigue.

We will begin this free walking tour of Bilbao's mysteries and legends in front of the Arriaga Theatre , the scene of a cruel murder still unsolved... Very close to this place we will contemplate the facade of the Cathedral of Santiago , whose exterior architecture will provide us with interesting clues about Basque mythology.

The next stop on this very special tour of the Biscayan capital will take place at Portal de Zamudio . Did you know that this crossroads is linked to nothing less than the witches of Bilbao? Just opposite is the Parroquia de los Santos Juanes , which guards the so-called “Miraculous Virgin”. If it weren't for her, the people of Bilbao would have suffered epidemics and other unpleasant torments...

We will continue the free tour of Bilbao next to the church of San Antón and the Mercado de la Ribera . If you still do not know the famous "Miracle of Atxuri", this is a good place to reveal its curious history. Very close to this point is the Plaza de la Encarnación , where we will shudder remembering a turbulent event related to the most perverse and depraved side of human beings.

To get rid of the bad vibrations of this last story, we will conclude the free tour at the Puente de la Merced . According to legend… His sculptures bring good luck!
