    A nice and popular in the old town square where to rest on one of the benches of stone or wood or take some spikes in some of the bars of the arcaded square while you see the children and not so kids play with their skateboards.

    Classic Spanish Plaza closed in neoclassical style full of very lively bar at any time of day. Perfect for cocktails and tapas bar!

  • Buzzing and Busy. Bars and bookstalls. Beer and Bites. Lovely plaza plenty of choice for food and drink
  • Very nice and old place. Gives off a good vibe. Some more sun wouldn't harm tho.
  • Large open square with lots of cafe and small bars long the outside. Great to have a seat and people watch for a bit.
  • Really liked the place, especially the history that surrounds you, an easy walk to where you wanted to be. Friendly too.
  • A Wonderful square to eat breakfast in the sun. There are plenty of great bars in the square for pintxos and drinks.

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.
