Bilbao, a great destination
A walk through Bilbao
“Bilbao and its inhabitants are waiting to welcome you. The city offers a lot of attractions to make visits to its streets, its squares, its river estuary, an unforgettable experience.
From the narrow streets of the Casco Viejo to the Gran Vía and the New Bilbao, there is a whole world of history and legends that have turned the small port born on the banks of the river grow into a world benchmark.”
Funicular of Artxanda
Semana Grande of Bilbao
Over nine days, festivities will take over the city streets and thousands of people will meet on the streets to enjoy the good atmosphere and the numerous cultural activities available on the festivities’ programme.
It was in 1978 that several associations from Bilbao decided to organise a contest of ideas to create a Big Week in Bilbao, as up to that date only a few scattered activities of little importance for the citizens used to take place in Bilbao.
So, “Aste Nagusia de Bilbao” (Bilbao’s Big Week) originated. After more than 30 years it has turned into one of the most popular and most visited festivities in Euskadi.
