Palacio de la Diputacion

The architecture of this building is amazing. Standing prominently on the large road, which is full of many shops. Definately worth checking out when visiting Bilbao.

The guided tour is in spanish, but the guide told me a few sentences in english, to understand the most important things. She was very helpful! The most important! Call them before you go! Call +34 946-083-537 for reservations from Monday to Friday!

We were with a group and had the privilege to get a tour through this nice Palacio. The lady that took us through the building gave us an insight in the history of this building and the people, this made the history of the Basque Country really vivid for us, and added value to our stay in Bilbao!

Piece of art. Architectonically speaking, this building was built in the late XIX century in an eclectic style. Situated in the Gran Via (main street). Free entrance.

We wanted to visit but hadn't realized that you must call ahead to get a time. Not that it was sold out but you must join a tour. Also it is the seat of the Basque Regional Government and so access is limited. A very nice representative explained this on the phone and met us anyway. She let us into... More
