Gran Via is the centre of commercial activity in Bilbao, and one of the most important streets in the Basque Country. Lining the street, you will find the main banks and finance companies of the provinces and, just like any other large city, there is constant coming and going. The economy is on the move here. This is also the place for shopping. The advantage Bilbao has over other large cities is that it is easily covered on foot. It boasts an array of clothing shops for young people and luxury outfitters, as well as places to buy all kinds of accessories and souvenirs of the city. These are mixed in with terraces, bars and restaurants, ideal for grabbing a bite to eat while you shop. The parallel roads leading towards the San Mames Stadium, going up towards Autonomia Street through Iparaguirre, make up the Indautxu neighbourhood. This is the luxury shopping district, where you will find brand-name clothing and many other products. This is the other side to the Old Town. You are, however, only ten minutes away from the rest of the shops.
