If you are wandering in the area, stop by the church. It is bright inside and there are gardens and a plaza (of course) nearby. We loved the high, white ceilings and the patterns extended from the stone columns.

Set back a little from one of the prettiest squares in the whole of Bilbao. A calm and light church.

This church was only one minute from our hotel and we could not walk past it all the time and not visit. The outside had been cleaned and looked good, but we found the inside a bit plain.

The Iglesia San Vicente is located just off the Jardines de Albio. It is a beautiful church with lovely music playing on the sound system when there is not a service. The artistic impression is also good.

I found this church more beautiful than the cathedral. Baroque alters on three sides, wonderfully carved and preserved. Atmospheric and a sense of a real community church used by and loved by the locals.
