  • I'll never understand why you can not get photos without flash, especially as in this case when the input is not cheap and the temple is desacralizado. I am Restorer and had wanted to reflect some details in a photo. The brochure sold it separately and the visit to the catacombs is irrelevant

  • 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.

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.
