What you'll do

Art, culture, and a craft beer combine for a look into the creative side of Bilbao, Bilbao La Vieja neighbourhood. Inmerse yourself in this multicultural neighbourhood and see first-hand the diverse cultural movements happening there as a result of municipal initiatives or led by locals themselves.

First of all be surprised visiting and old church that is now a venue for concerts and exhibitions and explore Marzana Dock entering the heart fo the neighbourhood to observe the huge change that has taken place here. The once drab-area is now home to many works by local and international artists, which can be seen on sides of buildings, on briges, and many others espaces which your guide will point out to you as you walk. I´ve been living in this neighbourhood for the last 30 years and I´ve been part of this transformation.

Finally we will visit Sagrado Corazón de María square, the epicentre of comercial life in the area, and location of many multicultural festivals. This is also where we´ll stop for one of the best local craft beers in the city at a local cultural centre engaged in the social movements happening in the area called Sarean to which I also belong. The tour ends after our beer, but don´t forget to ask me about what else to see and do in Bilbao.
