GA - Bilbao / classic tours / Half Day Tours / Ensanche & City Center

#2 BILBAO “Ensanche” area - the city center

#A BILBAO center + metropolitan area

The tour is focused on the “Ensanche” area - the big town extension of 1883 which is today recognized as the city center of Bilbao. We will start along the river, transformed from harbour and industrialized area to the new glamorous promenade of Bilbao with the white pedestrian bridge of Santiago Calatrava. The geometric grid of the “Ensanche” offers a large variety of well worth seeing buildings: the local government´s library, the renovation of the former “wine and tobacco facility” Alhondiga by Philippe Starck and of course the timeless metro stations by Norman Foster.
