Unamuno Plaza

The Callao of Bilbao.

Do you hear the hubbub? This is the nucleus of the Old Town and the start of what they call ‘7 streets’. Unamuno Square, dedicated to one of the key players in the ’98 literary generation (born at number 16, Ronda Street), is one of the busiest squares, filled with youths who start their night here (with beer and tapas) every weekend. The square originally connected the city centre to the Begoña district, where people would go to pray to the Virgin Mary or ‘Amatxu’, in the Basilica, up the 213 steps of the Calzadas de Mallona. Today, it is a perfect amalgamation of different styles, people and atmospheres, ideal for shopping and dining. An interesting array of shops surrounds it, offering local antiques to brand name clothing. At night, this place has a wonderful atmosphere. This is the typical place to have a drink after a hard day’s work. If you visit Bilbao during its Semana Grande festivals (from the 15th of August), you will be able to enjoy concerts, markets and a plethora of activities.
