Add To Plan

Begin with a tour of Bilbao's Old Quarter, the heart of the city where the narrow streets are lined with Renaissance, Baroque and Modernist buildings. Debark the coach and begin a brief walking tour through the area. Your guide will point out the main sights, including the Cathedral of Santiago, a Gothic Church of San Anton and the Plaza Nueva, an arcaded square.

Afterwards, continue to Castro Urdiales, the town center with its characteristic houses with wooden rows of balconies. Castro Urdiales has all the charm of a small seafaring and fishing village with a rich heritage. The town is medieval in origin and earned recognition as a Historic Site in 1978. Discover the seafaring nature of the old village formed by narrow streets that are ideal for strolling. Pass the 13th-century church of Santa Maria and the castle lighthouse, which is visible from all parts of town. Then, re-board the coach for the return trip to the pier.

Please note: Guest must be able to walk approximately 1.25 miles over uneven and cobblestone surfaces and up inclines. Comfortable walking shoes are recommended. Due to the nature of this tour, it is not recommended for guests with walkers or wheelchairs.
