Bilbao - Route Through "Casco Viejo" or seven streets (oldest neighbourhood and the original nucleus of Bilbao) and "pintxos" tasting
Bilbao is a city of contrasts that allows you to discover through a pleasant walk through its most emblematic places how tradition and modernity harmoniously coexist. The Casco Viejo, with its seven streets, is the place that gave rise to the Villa de Bilbao more than 700 years ago and one of the most emblematic and iconic places of the city and therefore, it will be our first visit.
We offer you a pleasant guided tour to discover the medieval Bilbao of cobbled streets, cantons, squares and corners with charm, all of them witnesses to the intense mercantile and port activity that made the Villa grow. Its walls, the Gothic cathedral of Santiago, the Plaza Nueva, the emblematic church of San Antón and the ancient ruins on which it sits, as well as the bustling market of La Ribera host more than 700 years of history and a timeless urban vitality.
But Casco Viejo is also the place par excellence to enjoy our famous cuisine specially our renowned miniature cuisine: the "pintxos". Grab one or ask for a plate and help yourself to an endless variety of delicious fingerfood options. This small snack is considered the quintessence of Basque cuisine and therefore sitting down to taste a selected variety of these “pintxos” is the best way to end this tour.
