  • Was passing early on Sunday morning and the church was open, I'm delighted I took the time to go in and take a look. It's a beautiful church in the heart of the old town.  more »
  • In many ways this is more interesting than the cathedral. While not possessing the spire or exterior, the interior is stunning and worth seeing. As it's in the old quarter, you'll probably stumble acr...  more »

  • The parish church of los Santos Juanes, of the 17TH century, occupied, along with the Basque Museum, which in its day was a Jesuit Foundation outside the walls of the historic centre of the town: the whole of the Church and the Colegio de San Andrés. Undergoing successive transformations, this Church of Baroque style with Renaissance elements, has an altar dedicated to the sacred heart, unique in the world. After the floods of 1983, was restored under the direction of architect Miguel Angel Corcuera. It is a model of Jesuit church with Latin cross plan inscribed in a rectangle and nave with chapels on both sides.

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.
