Overview Central. Tranquil. Connected. In this Bilbao neighbourhood, residents have everything from greenery to the exciting city centre at a moment’s notice. Uribarri (Spanish: Uríbarri) is just a few minutes’ walk from all the attractions of the Basque capital, including Deusto University and the Casco Viejo, but its steep streets make it feel unexplored and authentically Basque.
What can I do here? Explore Uribarri’s streets using the public escalators, admire Bilbao’s handsome city hall, take the funicular up to the summit of Mount Artxanda and marvel at the panoramic views of the city, and relax in Etxebarria park. When you’ve had your fill of neighbourhood life, cross the Zubizuri bridge and you’re in the heart of the city centre.
Interesting fact The La Salve bridge became famous when the Guggenheim museum was built directly underneath it. The bridge’s red portico was later constructed in 2006, following a competition aiming to further integrate the bridge’s architecture with the Guggenheim. Architectural!
