Your tour begins in front of Concordia Train Station, close to the boundary between the Old Town, the Ensanche area, and Bilbao La Vieja, the most popular area during the Industrial Revolution. Nowadays, Bilbao La Vieja is an open-minded, multicultural, and dynamic neighbourhood undergoing a huge transformation.
After visiting Marzana Dock, we will enter the heart of the neighbourhood to observe the huge change that has taken place here. The once drab-area is now home to many works by local and international artists, which can be seen on sides of buildings, on bridges, and many other spaces which your guide will point out to you as you walk.
Many cultural spaces, such as Bilbaoarte and Sarean, are driven by the neighbourhood community, and are the real engine behind the area’s transformation – something that will be highlighted throughout this tour in order to better showcase the social changes being spearheaded by locals.
We also visit Sagrado Corazón de María Square, the epicentre of commercial life in the area, and location of many multicultural festivals. This is also where we’ll stop for one of the best craft beers in the city. The tour ends after our beer, but don’t forget to ask your guide about what else to see and do in Bilbao.
