"Visit the Saint Joseph Church" Bilbao Things to Do Tip by DanielF

Bilbao Things to Do: 363 reviews and 898 photos


One of the streets crossing at Moyúa Square is Elcano Street (in memory of the famous 16th century seaman from Getaria). A few metres away from the Square, you will find the Church of Saint Joseph of the Mountain, built by José María Basterra for the Fathers Augustines after they left their former convent for the construction of the City Hall. In front of the church, you can see a sculpture by Vicente Larrea commemorating the fathers of the Bilbaino Ensanche: Achúcarro, Hoffmeyer and Alzola.
