The Casco Viejo area is Bilbao’s old town. This part of town is also nicknamed "las Siete Calles" - the Seven Streets in English - as it counts seven main streets. This pedestrian district is bursting with lively bars, restaurant and shops. The Ribera open market, selling local produce, is also held there.

Taste the town’s famous pintxos

Pintxos look a lot like Spanish tapas. They are bite-sized versions of larger dishes. Most bars offer them, and they can be enjoyed with friends or family in a relaxed atmosphere. Made with meat, fish or vegetables, they can be marinated or plain...there are lots to choose from. They can be savoured with a glass of Rioja wine, produced not far from Bilbao.

Crossing the river on the Puente de Vizcaya

The Puente de Vizcaya is a transporter bridge, built during the 19th century. Foot passengers and car-drivers can cross the river in a gondola. This bridge is classified as a UNESCO World Heritage site. You can take a lift up to the top of this structure. From the top, you can look out over Bilbao’s harbour and port entrance.
