About the tour

Putting value on the quality of Bilbao's water, relating it to its history and monuments throughout your visit

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE TOUR

With water as the guiding thread and intertwining passages, events and events, this visit relates the past and present of Bilbao town with water. From its origins, next to a passable ford of the Nervión-Ibaizabal, to the recent process of sanitation of the estuary, passing through some novel drinking water supply systems. Without forgetting the public sources, the devastating effects of the dreaded "aguadutxus" and the anecdotes related to water that have taken place over the centuries.

GUIDING ITINERARY

Fuente del Arenal - San Nicolás - Plaza Nueva - Plaza Unamuno - Portal de Zamudio - Cantón Alejandro de la Sota - Plaza Santos Juanes - Plaza Consulado de Bilbao - La Ribera - Plaza Santiago - Calle del Perro - Teatro Arriaga.

PRACTICAL INFORMATION

-Groups of max. 15 pax. Because in addition to professionals some of us are also neighbors and we believe that the future of the neighborhood depends on taking care of it and respecting it. Because we do not want you to miss any of our explanations and because we believe that a close treatment will improve your experience during the tour.

-We do not use amplifiers. We have nothing against it, we know its usefulness, but the Casco Viejo de Bilbao is not only a commercial and tourist area, it is also a residential area. Thus we do not contribute to noise pollution and we respect the rest of the neighbors.

-If you have a reusable bottle, we recommend that you take it with you. This will avoid the generation of waste from plastic bottles. In Bilbao there are more than 300 public sources with high quality drinking water that deserves to be valued.
