Taberna Plaza Nueva, Bilbao

(4.4/5 based on 1,800+ reviews on the web)
Marvel at the impressive neoclassical architecture of Taberna Plaza Nueva. Built in 1821, this square serves as an iconic landmark and is the central point of the city, featuring shops, restaurants, and accommodations. Wander through the arched entrances to the enclosed plaza, admiring the beautiful arcaded buildings. Don’t miss trying pintxos, or small appetizers of the local Basque cuisine, at one of the many bars that line the plaza. On Sundays the plaza hosts a traditional flea market and is a great place to find eccentric souvenirs. A visit to Taberna Plaza Nueva represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Bilbao vacation builder to plot your vacation.

  • Typical site to the main squares of the villages. You will find a wide range of local leisure to enjoy Bilbao cuisine or at least have contact. If these are the old town will visit it safe.

  • excellent place to spend a Sunday morning, or cualkier day alternate for its different bars, clasikos from makes very many years, such as biblao café or restaurant victor, formerly existed some baths in the middle of the square, that eased the needs of many people of Bilbao, today are missing so it is concentration on Sunday morning to Exchange amount of artikulos where massively come the children of our city

  • Colonnaded square. Shady edges with loads of eating choices. Very pleasant ambience.
  • Gorgeous square. Loads of restaurants. Great lunch
  • Amazing place to drink the popular "tinto de verano" (summer wine) eat something and chill out.
  • Preciosa plaza y más aún en un día soleado. Hay bares de pintxos estupendos y diversión en forma de puestos de libros y monedas e intercambio de cromos y cartas
  • Must see, go and eat here if you are coming to Bilbao for tourism. The square is full with pintxo places and there is a lot of ambience in the area
