  • Schedule inflexible and little broad in the month of August. characteristic of many of the churches, chapels... of the Basque country. A penalty.

  • Interesting Church located on the banks of the River, next to the bridge of the same name, the la Ribera market and the old town hall, in the heart of the old town. It is one of the most emblematic buildings in Bilbao, appearing in the coat of arms of the city. Mix different architectural styles such as the late (interior), Renaissance (front cover) and Baroque (Bell Tower), and even you can see remains of the old wall of the city dug near the altar. Its old altarpiece has been lost and is currently completed with paintings by contemporary Bilbao artist Ignacio García Ergüin, but still can be observed on its side chapels interesting works as the altarpiece of mercy in the plateresque style, the carvings of San Cosme and San Damián (dating from 1664) by the sculptor Antonio de Alloitiz and a nice modern copy of the Virgin of Begoña , patroness of Vizcaya.

  • A small but beautiful gothic church. It is the Church that appears on the shield of Bilbao and Athletic. Under the ground you have ruins that were discovered recently and now you can see. And it's free, not as others.

Where to stay in Bilbao

Thanks to the Bilbao's safe and newly renovated metro system, all neighborhoods are any easy commute regardless of the city's characteristic rainy weather. The Casco Antiguo, or old quarter, is undoubtedly the heart of the city's and best place for trying the famous "pintxos" or small appetizers. Small boutique hotels and family-owned pensions provide affordable and convenient accommodation for those wishing to get to know this picturesque district. If you prefer a more tranquil experience away from the lively bar culture characteristic of the old quarter you might wish to stay in one of the many hotels that line the beautiful Nervión River leading down from the historical district to the Guggenheim museum.
