  • Being a cultural commodity of interest, San Francisco de Asis Church, nicknamed "the fifth parish", among the people of Bilbao began its construction in 1890 and opened in 1902

  • The Church of St. Francis of Assisi so aptly stylized antique that looks built in the middle ages. Actually it was erected in 1890, but the architect Luis Ur′es was so inspired by the Gothic cathedrals that tried to arrange for a church in the same spirit. Conceived he succeeded brilliantly, as exemplified by the award, which it honoured the jury in Madrid. Every detail of the Church in its place, it is highly harmonious construction.

  • Great solid built
  • Zabalburu family, who resided in the nearby Mena Palace, ceded the land and paid for part of the work of this neo-Gothic church, designed in 1890 by the architect Luis de Landecho, who devised a temple inspired by the Gothic and built cathedrals with sandstone of Mount Oiz. For this project, he obtained the gold medal at the exhibition of fine arts of Madrid of the same year. This church was built before the increase of population that took place in Bilbao at the end of century XIX, on the occasion of industrial development, reason why is called the "fifth parish". At the beginning of century XXI has been rehabilitated by Rafael Purroy. Include its interior stained glass windows (its design and construction were responsible to a craft of Munich) and the rose window of the façade.
