“Best view of Bilbao”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

You can't go wrong for some pocket change. It's by far the best view of Bilbao and on the other side of the hill you can see the Airport and Bay of Biscay. There isn't much to do up top beside gaze but it's worth it. The trains come every 30 minutes or so, you won't be stuck bored up there. Do it just for the view.

“Bilbao from the sky”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

Don't miss the occasion the see Bilbao from this place. A short walk from the bridge and jump into the little train which brings you to the top of the hill where you have a great sightseeing of Bilbao city and the surroundings.

“Fabulous views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

This is well worth the time if the weather is clear because once up on the hill you get the most amazing panoramic view of the city.

“What a view!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

Walked over the white bridge over the river,up a side street and you are there. Great trip up the Swiss made tram. Walked around the small park a few times just for the views of Bilbao. You can see for miles.

Enjoyable brief trip to/from the Arxanda summit. The view from the lookout point is gorgeous. Glad to see bikes & pets allowed.
