The stadium itself is an amazing piece of architecture that looks great during the day and lit up spectacularly after we saw Bilbao beat Sevilla 3-1 in a great game. A little more expensive than we were expecting but definitely worth it!

I visited the old stadium and did the tour the last time I was here. Unfortunately I was unable to do a tour this time. The stadium is having a roof put on at the moment so we had to make do with the view from the cafe 'La Campa de Los Inglese' or Englishmans field translated. The stadium looks... More

One of the best stadiums that I have ever visited the San Memés! It's just has everything, Passion, amazing crowds and scenery and one of the best football teams to watch in La Liga.

One of the best stadiums visited; great views from almost anywhere but would recommend the lower level if you have a fear of heights. Location is very central with easy access by foot or metro and easy access within stadium itself was very straightforward . Would recommend an evening game to get full benefit when outside of stadium is illuminated

We went to a football match of Athletic Club on a Sunday afternoon. Bought the tickets one day before at the ticket window at the stadium, where the people are very helpful. We had great seats and saw a great game, 2-2 end result

If you like professional football... This stadium is called "The Cathedral" and you will be amazed!! The fans cheer for their local team either if they win or lose! One of the best experiences anyone can feel in pro football!

Although there was no stadium tour available we managed to see the ground from the upstairs Bilbao shop.The workmen are still working on the stadium and it is up there with Barca or Madrid but smaller at 53000+.Reaching this years final of Copa del Rey has given the team and Bilbao a real boost.

The San Mamés is a fantastic new stadium with the stands right on top of the pitch. The people of Bilbao treat Athletic like a religion and it was a great experience to be a part of it. The stadium is in the middle of the city and is an integral part of the city. There is no worries about... More
