The architectural emblem of the city

Architectural emblem and culture of the city. like this This is how we could define Plaza Nueva, located in the heart of the old town of Bilbao. Inaugurated in 1851, this square was conceived as a as a multipurpose space, intended both for commercial functions and for events and social gatherings. 

With a classic rectangular shape, the plaza is designed to create a unique and modern design. It is surrounded by three-story neoclassical buildings, with arches on the ground floor that house a wide range of bars, restaurants and shops. It is very common for visitors and locals to feel attracted by its pintxos and coffees, giving life and continuous movement to the place. These arches, in addition to being a distinctive architectural element, have witnessed the commercial and social evolution of Bilbao over the years. 

Plaza Nueva has also been the scene of numerous celebrations and events over time. From fairs and markets to concerts and festivals; being at certain times of the year such as during the Great Holy Week in Bilbao when the square becomes a hive of activities and cultural proposals for all ages. 

Visiting the Plaza Nueva is to immerse yourself in a key piece of the history of the Bilbao tradition. Although it has undergone changes and renovations throughout its existence, it has managed to preserve its essence and continues to be an essential meeting point for those who visit the city. Without a doubt, a place where the city's past and present converge harmoniously.
