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'.

This was a very interesting place to visit. The Architecture was varied and the square had a pleasant ambience. Bilbao was a surprise , we only went there to catch the ferry back to the UK. thinking, being a Port city that it would not have offered so many places to visit. We stayed at Kobetamendi motorhome parking, wow what... More

We went around this plaza four times in our hire car as we couldn't find the required side street. Bilbao is a very difficult place to drive with the largest number of pedestrian crossings and traffic lights that we have ever encountered.

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

Large square, looks nice but there's nothing special about it. You will pass it along on the way to other attractions.

We started at the beginning of the Great Street of Diego Lopez. The streets are well marked. We had just finished our visit of the Guggenheim and wanted to enjoy a beautiful day in town. We walked the entire avenue, stopping to shop and to enjoy lunch. The most interesting thing we saw were movers taking a house full of... More

We spent half a day in Bilbao to visit the Guggenheim museum. Before the opening of the museum in the morning, we walked around the city and passed through this square. It is large and in a good location.
