What to expect

'Alirón' is the war cry for citizens of Bilbao, the one that sounds when Athletic Club wins a title. It is said that the word 'Alirón' comes from the English 'All Iron' and is that at the end of the 19th century when the English people found in Bilbao a mine full of this mineral wrote on the door 'All Iron' and all the miners began to sing "Alirón, Alirón!". Iron and titanium, equally, reached the city in 1997 with the opening of the Guggenheim Bilbao Museum.

This tour offers the opportunity to get to know both icons of the city. First, you will make a 45-minute guided visit to the San Mamés football stadium, known as “La Catedral” the headquarters of the Athletic Club Bilbao. San Mamés, with more than 105 years of football on the same site, is at the same time one of the most cutting-edge fields in Europe. Imagine being a footballer, feel the excitement of running out onto the field, live the experience of touring the press room, the local locker room or running out through the tunnel. Later, you'll have free time to enjoy the museum that distills the history of Athletic Club.

After this visit, your guide will be waiting for you to start a walking tour around the modern area: Abandoibarra in order to arrive at the Guggenheim Museum where you will enjoy a private guided visit of 1,5 hours to discover the temporaries and permanents exhibitions. Finish the tour with a magnificent lunch at the prestigious Bistro Restaurant located into the museumé
