A large and beautiful square in the middle of a busy shopping area. Plenty of eateries around and a nice place to take in the atmosphere.
Worth a pop in!

Very pretty square in the old town. We went at the end of a long and trying day, and enjoyed sitting with a drink, propel watching and soaking up the atmosphere.

We ate in this beautiful square twice, and always seemed to end up back in it for a drink. The stunning architecture and lively atmosphere are not to be missed. It is dotted with bars and eateries but is slightly more pricey than the famous old town because of what you sit in. But its well worth the extra euro!!

This square reminded me of the one in Vitoria. Cute cafés around, children running around in the middle of it. Have a pintxo (or two) in one of the places around this square, they say that the best tasting pintxos in Bilbao can be found in there.

Nice square, there is one in every town in Spain. We sat and had a coffee/glass of wine at one of the coffee shops. The touristic brochure recommended Victor but it opened quite late so we had a couple of tapas at the bar, which was ok, and then moved to SORGLNGULO in Plaza Nueva where we had to die for calamari for pennies. Everything was quite cheap even the wine (
PLEASE NOTE: Bilbao on 2 and 3 July 2014 was pouring with rain and chilly. This is, according to the locals, typical weather even in summer.
