  • 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!

  • Little place next to the prominent Victor Montes - you can easily oversee it. I'm glad we ended up eating Pinxos here - nice choices, very friendly owner. Top
  • I would have liked to try the tapas of this bar, but the owner scolded us for taking photos. Very little educated.

  • Great place to sample good Pintox. The price is a little more expensive but the difference is noticeable compared to the other locations in Plaza Nueva. Top cute indoor hall.

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.
