Full description
Retrace the history of 19th century Bilbao and discover the industrial development that led to the meeting of two very different social classes. The tour begins with pickup from your hotel in Bilbao and heads out towards the mouth of the Ibaizabal estuary.

Arrive at the UNESCO listed Vizcaya Bridge, built in the late 1800s to connect the two banks on either side. Learn about the architecture of the bridge, as well as how it brought together local communities and the effects this had on the area’s industrial development. From the bridge, admire views of the steep and narrow streets of Portugalete, a medieval village on the left bank.

Next, explore the charming town of Getxo, bursting with character and centuries-old houses. Discover the town’s many districts, and admire epic views of the Punta Galea cliffs. By the end of the tour, you’ll have a better understanding of Bilbao’s history, culture, and socioeconomics.
