Bilbao ALSA - Zaragoza

by natansz

I plan to travel from Bilbao to Zaragoza on a Saturday. I tried without success to purchase tickets over the internet, but did not succeed.
Does anyone know if it is alright to buy tickets the same day of travel for a bus ride Bilbao-Zaragoza.
Are there any ALSA ticket offices in the city or is the bus terminal the only place to buy tickets?

I checked the website of ALSA,, and is working O.K. Yu can purchase tickets in this website. However, I hope that you are not going to have any prolem if you purchase the tickets a couple of minutes before the depart of the bus in the same bus station.

Hi Franja,
thanks for the reply. For some reason, ALSA does not accept any of my cards. Seems to be a general problem.
All best,

Very beautiful building, just in the right bank of Nervión river.
From this place, you can walk to 'Casco Viejo', or Old Town, where narrow streets, lots os shops and little bars to take little glasses of wine or beer can give you a pleasant day. Places to take into account are 'Siete calles' or Seven Streets, in the Old Town, and the most important theater in Bilbao: Arriaga.

If you choose the way of Guggenhein Museum, please, take the right hand street, with the Town Hall at your back. After a few metres, you must cross the river by a new white bridge, and follow in the opposite bank.

The Botxo

by DanielF

Bilbao is often referred to by locals as the Botxo, which means hole in Basque. This is due to the fact that the city is located on the bottom of a bowl shaped valley totally surrounded by hills (Artxanda, Guribikolanda, Mikoleta, Orueta, Artagan, Arbolantxa, Pastorekorta, Pagasarri, Ganeta, Restaleko, San Bernabé, Banderas, Santo Domingo, Avril, Enekuri... ). They protect the city from the strong winds and create a somewhat suffocating heat in the most torrid days of the Summer. On the other hand, the vision of the green hills from almost every corner of the city is a great counterpoint to all the industrial feeling of the city, and reminds you of the fact that nature is never far away. That contrast was particularly pleasant during the days when Bilbao was a much gloomier place than it is now.

Tasting Alguitara

by hartti

The people here in the Northern Spain are extraordinarily hospitable. They are active, imaginative, and they know how to enjoy life. They are generous people who offer whatever they have, and manage to make the visitor feel at home on these frontier shores. At least, if they do not have anything else offering for unexpected guests, they have a hidden bottle of orujo (Aguardiente, Alguitara), maybe saved for tens of years for this purpose.

These products, always distilled from grapes, require very a delicate production process which is laborious and not easily described. They frequently involve a ritual prior to tasting. The process, like the ritual, is not unimportant: "al Alguitara" distillation is not the same as other forms. There are at least two ways to consume these orujos: by the glass (in shots) perhaps on an empty stomach; or to aid digestion, after a big meal.

Every Christmas, El Corte Ingles on Gran Via (a large department store) has animated displays depicting festive things. They are on from early December to Los Reyes (6 January). Free, and very popular with children.
