Free Walking Tour of Modernist Bilbao

Your free walking tour of modern Bilbao in front of the Puppy sculpture in front of the famous Guggenheim Museum. From this point, we'll start exploring the streets of this Basque city to learn about its history and many of its monuments.

We'll first wander around the Plaza Euskadi, where we'll look up to the sky to admire the Iberdrola Tower. Nearby we'll find the Museum of Fine Arts and the Zubizuri Bridge, designed by the famous architect Santiago Calatrava.

From here, we'll reach the Plaza Moyua, where we'll appreciate the exterior architecture of the Chavarri palace and the Carlton Hotel. We'll continue our tour in the Plaza Circular, where we'll learn about the history of Don Diego Lopez de Haro and we'll also walk past two other iconic buildings in modern Bilbao such as the palace of the Provincial Council of Bizkaia and the Campos Elyseos Antzokia theater.

Next, we'll stop in front of the Abando Indalecio Prieto station to admire its beautiful stained glass windows.

After two and a half hours of sightseeing, we'll end this free tour outside one of the most iconic landmarks in modern Bilbao - the Bailen skyscraper.
