"Admire the Panorama of La Naja Quay" Bilbao Things to Do Tip by DanielF

Bilbao Things to Do: 363 reviews and 898 photos

La Naja Quay is a number of buildings on the left bank of the Nervion with an arcaded promenade and flanked by two towers. They constitute one of the most peculiar images of the industrial Bilbao. Like the rest of the area, most of the buildings have been recently renovated or are going to be refurbished soon.

The tall building in the front was the first highrise in Bilbao and people still call it the Skyscraper of Bailén Street, even if,with only 43 metres, its height seems quite ridiculous, but it was the tallest building in town until the BBVA tower was erected and also one of the tallest in Spain at the time. It is a 1946 of Manuel Ignacio Galíndez, one of the best Bilbaino architects in the 20th century.
