Gastronomic delights in Bilbao
Bilbao is home to the largest covered market hall in Europe, the Mercado de Ribera, which has an impressive three storeys. Locals come here to shop or enjoy some pintxos with a glass of wine. Pintxos are the Basque version of tapas and consist of a slice of bread with all kinds of tasty toppings. Some are tiny works of art, but they are always delicious! From the market, it’s only a short stroll into the old town. Admire the many historic buildings and charming squares. Hungry? Here you will also find many great pintxo bars. Also stop by the lively Plaza Nueva with nice shops, restaurants and patios. Whether its for a night on the town or a good old-fashioned pub crawl, Casco Viejo is definitely the place to be.
