This plaza is always busy and is on the Gran Via, one of the main shopping and business avenues in Bilbao. It has a good tourist information office and there are lots of interesting side streets running off of it. It's not necessarily a must...More

This has a central location and so gets footfall. There's no real reason why this should get a separate mention as a place to see. You'll walk through it and barely realise it's a thing to 'see'.

It is just there. You will just stumble on it while going around Bilbao. There are much more interesting things to see in the city. If you do not run across it, don't worry about it.

If you are walking in Bilbao and taking the bus or metro then you will eventually come across this plaza. Not really spectacular but very circular and with a tall statue in the centre. Nice to come across and to veiw on your walks.

Pretty plaza with a fountain and flowers. It is on the Main Street of Bilbao. There is not anything else especially note worthy on the plaza.

Not much to see here. If you are walking the streets of Bilbao you will eventually come across the Plaza, especially of you are taking the metro
