Casco Viejo (Old Town) Tour

1:30h through the heart of Bilbao

circuitoWe start in El Arenal, the recreational area of the city dominated by the Baroque church of Saint Nicholas. Through the neoclassical Plaza Nueva (square) we reach los Santos Juanes, a former Jesuit church. This is where the medieval heart of the old town begins: the original Seven Streets.

Following the course of the city wall we find the church of San Antón, which its archaeological remains bring us back in time to the first periods of Bilbao. The former town council, the consulate, the bridge, as well as the harbour and the market were placed around it. Walking through La Ribera and Belosticalle we reach Bilbao Cathedral, the centre of the religious life in Bilbao.

El MDAS de Bilbao nacía en septiembre de 1961. Su objetivo primordial era la conservación, el estudio y la divulgación del patrimonio histórico-artístico de la Diócesis de Bilbao.
