Wonderful place, framed by one Pinchos bar after the other. Heaving in the evening, whole families enjoy themselves here, kids playing football outside, adults eating pinchos and having a good glass of wine and then moving to the next bar...

Lots of towns across Spain have nice squares, and this is another one of them. Great atmosphere at night, and one of the things I liked about it is that the multitude of bars on the square don't charge you silly prices to eat at their outside tables - not like Plaza Mayor in Madrid! Really small, cosy, great food... More

A beautiful old square in the heart of the old town. A perfect place to simple pintxos with friends. Try Gure Txoki or Cafe Bar Bilbao.

A great place to sit and watch the world go by, surrounded by cafe bars used by the locals and almost all have pintxos (tapas) on display. There was a festival to celebrate the start of Lent, with local cultur in abundance.

Located in the old city, this is a major plaza with multiple bars/restaurants. Great meeting place, or just to enjoy a sunny day.
