Bilbao Old Town - Las Siete Calles

Bilbao Old Town - Las Siete Calles

Bilbao's heart still beats in the Old Town, also known as the "Siete Calles". The Old Part, which had to be restored after the terrible floods in 1983, is one of the main leisure and shopping centres of Bilbao.

 

Its pedestrian streets are lined with classic shops interspersed with innovative establishments and any amount of bars and restaurants in which to taste the best of Basque cuisine.

 

Hence, every year millions of visitors walk through its streets. Any excuse is good to enjoy the gastronomic, commercial and cultural offer of the Old Town.

 

The corners of the Old Town house Bilbao's oldest churches and monuments: Santiago's Cathedral, the Church of San Antón, the Archaeological Museum, the Basque Museum, the Bidebarrieta City Library and the Plaza Nueva Square, a leisure area that hosts many ludic and festival activities, such as the Sunday Market and Santo Tomás Fair.
