Old Town + Cathedral - Casco Viejo & El Arenal, Bilbao: 56 reviews and 121 photos
The alde zaharra - old town - of Bilbo is a stark contrast to the measure and logic of the streets and organization of the new town. The old town is both characteristic and unique. The streets are wider and more airy than those of many other Spanish cities (like Barcelona for example). On the other hand, the streets are lined with the same sorts of shoppes you're likely to find in other cities and no end of bars, pubs and restaurants selling the very delicious food of the Basque Country.
The alde zaharra is based on "seven streets": somera, artekale, carnecería vieja, tendería, belostikale, barrenkale and barrenkale barrena. It was expanded by the Plaza berria, the New Square. The alde zaharra includes the Euskaltzaindia (the Academy of the Basque Language), the Basque Museum and the Arriaga Theatre.
