  • Incredible diversity of cheese, ham, meat, fish and sea food. The vegetables are tremendous and the prices are very good. Especially the food court is incredible. Pintxos, how they are called in euskadi, are a local specialty, tapas with cheese, fish and all kinds of tasty things. I will definitely come back
  • Well laid out, making it easy to find the section you're looking for. A wide variety of top quality fresh produce. Very clean and has a good cafeteria.
  • If I lived in the city I would like this. The Tapas seemed more expensive than others around town and when we were there there was a very unpleasant fish,trash,bathroom smell throughout the market that made it difficult to enjoy a drink or food.
  • Large indoor market which sells meat, vegetables, fruita and produce. Great to have a breakfast pintxos and browse all the beautiful meats and fruits. We grabbed a small bag of olives to enjoy on our walk around.
  • Wonderful market with pintxos bars. However the Pintxos are more expensive than in the old quarter and no option for gluten free bread.

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.
