The most Instagrammable places in Bilbao

Plaza Nueva

Plaza Mayor in Madrid? No, but let's see if your followers are able to see the difference between the arches of one square and the other. A meeting point for all Bilbao locals and the birthplace of much of the city's leisure activities, Plaza Nueva is the heart of the Old Town and a place you'll love to discover and to let all those who enjoy your photos discover it.

 

The sunset from Marzana Quay

You should stop by the Muelle Marzana area for onw single reason; The mix of colours, and all the shades of red that forming the sunset that you will see from Marzana Quay. Capture that moment because it will make you smile every time you see it.

In front of you, the Mercado de la Ribera, and the second reason to stop by this area and leave a photo to remember.

 

Mercado de la Ribera

Europe's largest covered food market and a real spectacle for your senses. As well as a great attraction to make your followers green with envy.

Feast on the freshest flavours of the most traditional products of Basque cuisine and quench your thirst in the most traditional Bilbao style; with txakoli or Basque cider. The obligatory photo? To the delicacies you're about to taste or to the front of the market, which simulates a ship in the harbour.

 

Parque Etxebarria

But if we're talking about places to watch the sunset while enjoying a well-deserved moment of peace after a long day touring the charms of Bilbao, Etxebarria Park is a must.

It has some incredible open spaces that offer panoramic views of the city of Bilbao and a romantic sunset like few others. Make your followers fall in love again from Bilbao.

 

El Arenal

The Arenal area is perfect for a stroll along the Old Town, or the Siete Calles. Around it, the renowned Arriaga theatre begs for a photo next to its façade, as does the town hall. But perhaps the best photo is at the Kiosk in the square. The Kiosko del Arenal is a monument unlike anything you have ever seen, and even less so if you think of a traditional kiosk.

By the way, if you're in the area on Sunday afternoons, stop by to record a video of yourself dancing to the music they play there.

 

Parque de Doña Casilda

A visit to Doña Casilda Park, or Duck Park if you ask a local, is a must on your list.  Stop by for a bit of peace and quiet and a lot of greenery. Although the photo you have to take, absolutely, is the one of the pond. Take a photo of yourself feeding the ducks, with columns in the background, or simply looking at the horizon with the fountain in the background, but it's a snapshot you must have and spread around.

 

Campa de los Ingleses

The quay of the Campa de los Ingleses is a must-see place to visit without excuses. The reason? It surrounds one of the most famous and visited monuments and places in the city; the Guggenheim Museum.

Before visiting the most important museum in the city, we recommend that you enjoy the green areas of the Campa and, if you are a football fan, take a photo with the plaque that reminds us that in that place, at the end of the 19th century, a group of Englishmen started to play a sport that was not very well known at the time; football.

 

Museo Guggenheim

A photo in the city's emblem of modernism and the avant-garde is a must, whether you're an art lover or not. The reason? The museum is a work of art in itself. What's more, it's surrounded by some of the best photos you'll take on your trip to Bilbao.

As scary as it is, having your picture taken with a nine-metre spider is cool. And if you're a fan of dogs, you're going to love Puppy, a twelve-metre West Highland White terrier made of flowers. Who wouldn't want a photo like that?

 

Monte Artxanda

Everything related to Artxanda mountain deserves to be immortalised and shared, from how to get there, accessing the funicular square, going up in the Artxanda Funicular, which has been around for over a century, to the views of the town of Bilbao from the Artxanda viewpoint.

 

Azkuna Zentroa

What used to be an old wine warehouse has now become an important meeting point for leisure and, above all, for the city's culture. Although what stands out most are not its exhibitions or activities, but the incredible 43 columns that tell different stories of history itself. A real discovery and a unique work by the Italian artist Lorenzo Baraldi.

  

Soñar; To Dream

This is what the façade of a building in Olabeaga proclaims. This is what this work by the artists' collective SpY asks and shouts out to us. Five letters that shout out over a large part of the city and captivate everyone who reads it. As simple as it is evocative. A unique work that has become an instant symbol of the city of Bilbao.
