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.

  • We found Plaza Nuevo to be a bit too bustling and busy for relaxing at a cafe. It was just too crowded to enjoy a coffee or beer. But if you want a high energy place this is it. 
  • This square is similar yet smaller and not as beautiful as plaza mayor de Madrid. There is some shops and reseurants that you can enjoy. 
  • The gastronomy and the basque pintxos are so tasty in the Plaza Nueva. We had a incredible pintxos and wine tour with walkingBizkaia. Nice experience with a local guide, Macarena. Very helpful girl!
  • Awesome place! A must see in Bilbao. La Olla had the best pintxos/tapas we had in Spain.
  • Many tapas choices around the square. The square itself is a typical European one but not a spectacular one. Good to stop by for a glass of wine and tapas
  • Marvelous place to wander from.pintxo bar to pintxo bar
  • A "must-see" stop if you're visiting Bilbao for the first time. Great pintxos in the area
