Old Quarter Of Bilbao Walking Tour

Very Easy
Starting point
Arriaga Plaza

Discovering Bilbao’s old quarter, known as the Casco Viejo, without a guide could give you only a fragmented picture of its sights and history. This walking tour ensures that you'll cover the must-sees without getting lost, and provides a guide to share their stories—insight you may miss if by yourself. Plus, the tour finishes with a river estuary boat trip, letting you view more of the city from the water.

What to expect?

  • Over 500 years of history will be explored on this walking tour. From the Cathedral of Santiago, Plaza Nueva, the Church of St. Anton and the ruins on which it stands, and the Mercado de la Ribera. This is where the town was born, this is where was the port and from this place, the city opened to the world serving as a bridge between northern Europe and the Hispanic kingdoms. You'll be guided by your professional tour guide in a small group.

  • Learn the history that took place in the streets that Miguel de Unamuno once walked.

  • Streets, houses, a town tucked behind a defensive wall, whose gates can still be seen today in a handful of conserved details.

  • Discover the legends that are told in the Old Town and meet the founder of Las Siete Calles.

  • Explora-Norte will take you on a traditional “txikiteo” or “poteo” (bar crawl) to the area's most iconic bars.
