This singular square is surrounded with bars where you can taste delicious "Pintchos" (snacks) and Rioja wine and perhaps walk up the Gran Via and visit the Corte Inglés, a unique department store where you can shop to your heart`s delight. Not to be missed

Centre of the wheel with streets as spokes in the heart of Abando district. A well-tended formal plaza with a roundabout, close to most things in Bilbao; a Metro station; an airport bus point at the significant Carlton Hotel; views along the great boulevard ie down the Gran Via Don Diego and up Lopez de Haro, up to Cesar Pelli's...

We stayed in the Carlton Hotel which is located on Plaza Federico Moyua and could not be happier of having chose such a great location. Within walking distance to the Guggenheim, Museum of Bellas Artes, Casco Viejo, Metro Station, Gran Vía, Airport buss connection and many other attractions, including a trolley.

the most peculiar about this square is perhaps that it is in fact a roundabout with not less than 8 roads entering. if you do a city walk you'll pass here and it's best to know well which direction you should go. the roundabout has a small park in the middle which makes it nice to include in a city...

It's really just a very large roundabout with a well floral decorated island in the middle. Perfectly fine, but not memorable, not worth making a special detour to see.

It is one of the three stops of the airport bus to city center. The square is large one full of floor and plant pots.

Large beautiful plaza, but there's really not anything there. It's a beautiful plaza, but that's about it.

It is a square, it is a roundabout. And the <Bilbainos> are very proud of it. It is always kept at it's best. Always fresh flowers. Maintenance people are always manicuring it. It's in the heart of the city and it is the heart of the city.

A lovely square with flowers in the middle and some interesting architecture surrounding it. See it along with the Azkuna Zentroa, which isn't far away.
