Take note of this circle. One spoke is a main shopping street. Another spoke leads towards the Guggenheim. Another spoke leads to restaurants with pintxos. So. Plaza Moyua makes a good landmark for orienting yourself.

A beautiful plaza with some great buildings around. A good place to sit and take in the atmosphere, maybe with a chilled glass of wine!

What a beautiful square in the middle of Casco Viejo it is a very lively square with lots of bars and restaurants. It is lovely to sit at one of the many bars to enjoy a drink and people watch. It seems to be a square where the locals meet to enjoy a chat and the children play. A lovely... More

This can also be called the throbbing heart of Bilbao, because it is always busy. The flowers, the beautiful buildings (Palacio de Chávarri, Casa Montero) and of course the Fosteritos, make this square unique. I could not believe that on this very square was the bus stop for the Bizkaibus to the airport (one expect such an important stop in... More

This plaza is right in the centre of the main commercial district on the Gran Via and has a small fountain in the centre. This plaza has eight roads intersecting around the centre circle with various interesting buildings including the Carlton Hotel. This plaza is just a natural walk through when walking around Bilbao.

As soon as you come out of the metro station of Plaza Mouya you get to see a scenic view of old historic buildings and a beautiful garden. The station exit and entrance are designed to suite the ambiance. From here you can walk around the old city and have a look at the old city of Bilbao with many... More

The Plaza is a busy roundabout in the centre of the city. There is a nice fountain and some lovely plants, but I wouldn't want to stop and relax here
