ENSANCHE OR EXPANSION DISTRICT IN BILBAO; WALKING DOWN THE GRAN VIA.

Come and learn about the expansion of Bilbao in 1870, thanks to which it became a great cosmopolitan city. On this tour we walk down large avenues such as Gran Via Don Diego López de Haro. We will also discover the economic development and industrial power of Bilbao, which is reflected in splendid buildings such as the Provincial Council of Bizkaia, the headquarters of both the BBVA and the BBK banks or the Carlton Hotel. The visit ends in Abandoibarra, where Bilbao has begun to transform itself into a model city of the 21st century owing to the tram, the Guggenheim or the library of the University of Deusto.
