We will start the guided walk through Bilbao in the Plaza de Santiago, specifically in front of the Cathedral. We will visit the interior of this Bilbao temple, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO on the Caminos de Santiago in 2015, to discover its extraordinary works of sacred art. Among the cathedral's most outstanding artistic works are the chapels of Nuestra Señora de los Remedios, Nuestra Señora del Rosario, San Diego de Alcalá and the popular chapel of Christ of Good Love. Also the Alta Mayor, the Cloister with a great legacy to discover.

After visiting the Cathedral, we will enter the old town of Bilbao. We will walk through its famous seven streets, a neighborhood on the banks of the estuary where traditional taverns and shops contrast with more modern stores. We will arrive at the Mercado de la Ribera, where you can find a wide variety of traditional Basque cuisine products along with a brief visit to the church of San Antón.

After walking through the most central streets of Casco Viejo, such as Calle del Correo, we will reach Plaza Nueva, which, in addition to being a perfect example of Roman neoclassical architecture, houses the headquarters of the Royal Academy of the Basque Language. Leaving through one of the arches of the square, we will visit Plaza Unamuno, where a sculpture of this universal writer from Bilbao awaits us.

Once we have learned the role of the writer in Basque culture, we will follow the route through the old town until we reach the Paseo del Arenal. Here we can contemplate, on the one hand, the Arriaga Theater, and on the other, the church of San Nicolás.
