Welcome to the most colourful part of Bilbao! Casco Viejo is a famous medieval neighbourhood, filled with delightful streets, great places to eat and a local market the likes of which you’ll be hard pressed to find anywhere else. It is a wonderful retreat for anyone who wants to experience the old fashioned side of Spain. At the Centre of the Casco Viejo are the original seven streets of Bilbao, which makes it a place of immense historical importance for the city.

Casco Viejo is also an important cultural centre for the city. It has a number of old Spanish churches, like the Santiago Cathedral, San Nicolas, San Anton, and the Church of Los Santos Juanes. Besides the San Anton church is the Ribera market, a tiny little paradise for any shopping freak, provided you’re willing to bargain! If the Ribera market isn’t good enough for you, head down to Correo street for some very good deals on artefacts and local mementos. When you’re done shopping, you can either visit Basque Museum or the Bizkaia Museum of Archaeology, or simply take a stroll down the streets and take in all the pretty sights.

  • At the corner of the Casco Viejo is the classic Arriaga theatre, a brilliant and beautiful opera house.
  • The Plaza Nueva in Casco Vieja has a lively flea market every Sunday, which is a great place to pick up old books and music records.

The Casco Viejo isn’t called the most colourful part of Bilbao for nothing. At any given time of the day, you will find the streets bustling with activity, as young and old come together to make merry in the many bars and stalls. It is a beautiful combination of the old and the new of Spain, and definitely worth a visit when you’re in Bilbao.

  • To have a lovely Spanish dinner at a bargain, head over to the restaurant ‘Casco’. For less than €25, you will get an appetizer, a plate of jamon serrano or Carpaccio, a plate of duck or fish with vegetables, dessert, coffee as well as a bottle of wine for each person.
  • There are scores of stalls on the streets, not all of which may be charging you the fair price. Don’t buy the first thing you see, and you’ll probably end up with some great steals.
  • Casco Viejo isn’t suitable for vehicles, but is a great place for pedestrians. If you have hired a car, leave it back at the hotel for this trip.
  • Most of the shops close around 2 PM, and reopen at around 5 PM after their daily ‘siesta’, or the famous afternoon nap. Time your visit accordingly, or better still, take a siesta yourself!
