We will start the guided walk around 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 roads of Santiago in 2015, to learn about its extraordinary works of sacred art. Among the cathedral's most outstanding artistic works are the chapels of Our Lady of Remedies, Our Lady of the Rosary, San Diego de Alcalá and the popular chapel of the 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 along with a brief visit to the church of San


After walking through the most central streets of the Old Town, 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 about the writer's role in Basque culture, we will follow the route through the old town until we reach Paseo del Arenal. Here we can contemplate, on the one hand, the Arriaga Theater, and on the other, the church of San
