What to expect

During the 19th century, the region of Bilbao experiences a huge industrialization development that led to two very different social classes: working-class and bankers. Each one laid on river Ibaizabal's West and East banks and both areas developed in their own way.

This tour will take you to learn about the Bizkaia bridge, built in the late 19th century as a representation of the iron industry in the area, and the link of both river banks. On the left side, lies the medieval village of Portugalete, with steep and narrow streets and Camino de Santiago routes. On the right side, you will discover Getxo, with all her different areas: from majestic Las Arenas and exclusive palaces of Neguri to the charming centuries-old houses of the Old Port in Algorta and the astonishing views from the cliffs of Punta Galea.

The estuary of the river Ibaizabal, coming from Bilbao, has many secrets ready to be discovered. Do not miss this chance of seeing all of them!
