This is the perfect place to play sports and relax after a long day.
An oasis of lush greenery.
The starting point of the birth and development of the city, Bilbao estuary unites the Nervion and Ibaizabal rivers, and is the line that divides Bilbao into two parts. Despite having been exploited for many years, with very little control, the city of Bilbao has recognised its importance of this body of water just over ten years ago. It is now one of the city’s largest green spaces. The arrival of the Guggenheim Museum brought other large projects to the area. Parks were built around the estuary and it is now one of the most popular places for those who play sports and want to wind down after a hard day’s work. This route is also a great way of getting one’s bearings and learning more about the most emblematic places in the city. The neighbourhood of Indauchu y Abando is on one side, and the magnificent panoramic vie of the Guggenheim Museum is on the opposite bank. Further in the distance, is the Basque Palace and the Zubiarte shopping centre. Once you get to the estuary, you will find the areas of Sestao and Portugalete, two maritime enclaves that played a key role in the city’s history.
