This walk will be centered on the importance of the Nervión River in the development of the city. From the “medieval Villa” (founded in the year 1300); followed by the “commercial Villa” (after the establishment of its Consulate in 1511); to the end of the XIX century. It was the proudly the region’s “industrial city”, and has, ever since then, been the new “postindustrial Bilbao” reborn from the ashes of its industrial ruins.
For pintxos time we’ll take you to our selection of bars, away from tourist traps, to discover the meaning of this tradition while enjoying the fantastic gastronomy of the city.

You are, Nervión, the history of the Villa,
you her past and her future,
you are memory always turning
into hope and on your firm
riverbed a fleeing flow.
