Cultural contrasts in Vitoria-Gasteiz

When visiting Vitoria-Gasteiz, this time we focus on two interesting cultural resources offered by this welcoming city. On the one hand, the modern painted murals that mark some of the buildings. And on the other hand, the jewel of Romanesque art: the Sanctuary of Nª Señora de Estíbaliz.

The route of the murals. 19 authentic works of art that have been painted over the last 14 years and that tell part of the history and identity of the city. The route can be followed independently or by hiring the services of specialised guides.

Sanctuary of Nª Señora de Estíbaliz. A linear route of approximately 12km that takes us to this jewel of Alava's Romanesque architecture. The entire route follows the Vía Verde del Vasco Navarro, a flat and accessible route for anyone who is used to doing sport. Once at the Sanctuary, it is possible to take a guided tour and learn about its history.

Alternative Bilbao

Bilbao holds countless works of art both in its museums and in its streets, we invite you to discover some of these alternative murals walking around Bilbao La Vieja. In addition, this city also hides different plans to discover the city in a more original way. If you want to discover the other side of Bilbao, this is your plan.

Starting the day in Bilbao La Vieja is a good option. Follow the route of alternative murals and immortalise every artistic corner of the city. From street to street we discover industrial buildings converted into modern fashion boutiques.

After lunch in one of the restaurants in the area and depending on the weather, you can take part in one of the water activities in the estuary, go karting or enjoy the famous "escape rooms".

And to end the day: the renovated Mercado de la Ribera, where having a drink or dinner with views of the estuary and the sunset is the best plan.
