Bilbao Ranking of Modern Architecture

3. Bilbao Ranking of Modern Architecture

At the beginning of the 19th century, a new modern and bright city was designed. The bourgeoisie wanted to follow the models of Paris and London in their efforts to transform the city. This is how Bilbao was created, or more specifically, the first "Ensanche", the first growth zone on the other side of the river at the moment when the city was involved in industrialization at the end of the Nineteenth Century. Don Diego Lopez de Haro, Lord of Bizkaia, founded the town in 1300. Now, the business center of this city is in Circular Square. The lime trees give shade and perfume to the Gran Vía, inviting you to walk, look at shops, and admire the facades. The tour includes: the inner beach of Bilbao, the statue of the founder of the town, the train station with its representation of the history of Bilbao, gardens, the most important banks of the city, the Chavarri Palace, the Provincial Council of Bizkaia, the interior of the Bilbao metro, and a building known as the Alhóndiga. This is a walking tour for a small group and, at the end of the tour, you go for pintxos (pintxo-pot included in the tour).

Take this tour!!!

This was one of the best tours I have ever taken. The tour was well-planned, organized, and interesting. Two female entrepreneurs designed and run this tour. They are so friendly and accommodating. They also prepared lots if GOT photos, so we could actually see where the exact film sites took place. We were able to climb Dragonstone and had time to relax at a restaurant near there. We also visited a medieval castle, King’s Landing beach, and the Dragonstone beach. We had free time for lunch in lovely town, Bermeo. Between our destinations, the ladies also played GOT scenes of locations to which we were traveling. I was never bored, and the 9-hour trip was full of adventures and fun. Even if you are not a GOT fan, you can definitely appreciate the amazing nature of the Basque Country. I loved every second of it! P.S. The bus driver was exceptionally professional and very careful. I did felt very comfy in the bus and enjoyed the ride.

Trip was great. Loved it. Was exactly what we were looking for. Great for GOT fans. Get your guide has the wrong pickup location. They also have a large markup on the tour. I should have done some more research to book direct but that’s not always easy. All in all, I’d still book with these guides.

Amazing experience:)

We had an amazing experience. It was an interesting trip, nice people to communicate with, good organization, great beaches to see - Zumaia was something really great! And of course San Juan de Gaztelugatxe - a magnificent place to be visited:)

Maria did a wonderful job showing the locations and providing insights from her experience. The three sights we visited were fantastic and all very beautiful. I fully enjoyed it!

Javier was wonderful! He is knowledgeable and enthusiastic and personalized the tour based on his experience and even our interests.
