Plaza Nueva, Bilbao Reviews

  • The Plaza Nueva is a must for those visiting Bilbao. Besides being a beautiful square it is a popular meeting point for locals and visitors alike. There are many bars that offer a variety of delicious pinchos and terraces where to sit and watch people walk by. On Sundays there's an interesting flea market (old books, minerals, birds...) and the place becomes very lively.

  • Love it, amazing plaze with a lot of bars and night life in the central towns square of Bilbao

  • Good coffee, the food looked very good and the service was excellent. A nice place to watch the world go by.

  • Nice typical spanish square. It is very interesting to see the children play in the middle of the square while their parents are in the near by terraces. Definitely one of the main areas of Bilbao - both touristic and local.

  • Amazingly hot though tourists seem to cope with the outdoors. Promptly closes at 1400 hrs !!
