Taberna Plaza Nueva, Bilbao

(4.4/5 based on 1,900+ 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.

  • 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
