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).
