Need help arranging travel from Bilbao to Haro

by Rossntheham

Can anyone suggest a means of transport from Bilbao to Haro? Bus? Train? Rent a car? Costs? I am taking my son to the Wine War on June 29 (for his high school graduation) but am having difficulty figuring out how to plan/budget/arrange the trip into Haro from Bilbao.

I would also appreciate recommendations and tips about the wine war, Bilbao, and Haro.

Thank you, kindly!

Re: Need help arranging travel from Bilbao to Haro

by ViajesdelMundo

I was in Bilbao last year but didn't go the direction of Haro, so am not a whole lot of help, but I see that you are new to VT, so am wondering whether you have looked at the map available on the Haro page: http://www.virtualtourist.com/travel/Europe/Spain/La_Rioja/Haro-266230/TravelGuide-Haro.html

once you have that page in front of you, click on MAP which is just to the right of the photo. The map shows that Haro is in a direct line south of Bilbao, so I would imagine that you could easily determine how to go when you are in Bilbao; but if you really don't want to leave it til that late, you could write to VT Member, tim tregenza, who lives in Bilbao and hope he signs on soon.

I have been through Haro. A small town that boasts the centre of the Rioja wine controlling authority and has the Wine War festival ! What a waste !

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/destinations/europe/spain/735093/Grapes--of-mirth.html

I am sure you can reach Haro by bus or train but a local will be able to help further.

The bus appears to be shown on here (click the Bilabao-Haro link for a timetable):
http://www.autobuseslaunion.com/ing/descarga_horarios.asp

or train on http://www.renfe.es/horarios/index.html
click Todas las Estaciones and BUSCAR under the search box to obtain the compolete list of stations including Haro.

possibly having a rental car will be easier as you can find some interesting places to visit around this area.

Follow the link below. It seems there is a direct bus Bilbao-Haro. Anyway, once there I would recommend you to visit Logroño, a small but very beautiful city. Logroño is the capital of La Rioja, so well communucated with all the villages of the region.

you can visit Logroño and La Rioja pages for further information.

Re: Need help arranging travel from Bilbao to Haro

Hey thanks! The bus website had all the info I needed. It's so cheap (9 Euros each way) and there are so many options (5 buses per day) that it seems silly to rent a car. We will also be traveling to Madrid and Lisbon, should you have any tips or words of advice. The website Destinia has been particularly useful.

Travel Tips for Bilbao

Music

by Kushelkitten

I think a good way to find out about a culture is to listen to their music whether tradtional or modern. While in Bilbao and Basque Country I discovered an artist by the name of Fermin Muguruza. His music is sung in Basque and is political in nature but fun to listen to. Once i arrived back at home I checked out his website and the lyrics were also available in Spanish, French, and English. Driving through Bilbao and the Biskaia listening to Basque Music.

Use the Metro Bilbao (subway),...

by Andares

Use the Metro Bilbao (subway), one of the newest, cleanest and most stunning in Europe. Bilbao is not too big, everything is at a walking distance. The metro is especially useful to get outside of Bilbao, along the shores of the river, to the sea.

Aste Nagusia (Local festivities)

by SirRichard

The Aste Nagusia (literally "Big Week") of Bilbao takes place the 3rd week of august and there are many events and shows that week in the city, including bullfightings. People go out at night for dinner, a drink, walking along the lively streets and there are temporary bars (txoznas) in the streets.

Holy Week

by DanielF

Like in many other parts of Spain, the Holy Week Processions were a dying a tradition in the Bilbao of the 1980s. However, the last years have seen a big revitalisation of this striking cultural and religious expression. There is currently in Bilbao a tenth of brotherhoods (cofradías) hosted in the main parishes in the city. Some of them have more than 1 000 brothers. Processions go from Monday of Grieves until Resurrection Sunday. During those days, several figures of the Virgin Mary, Christ and scenes of the Passion are carried out in the streets of Bilbao by the penitents or nazarenos, dressed with their peculiar hoods.

The Procession of the Holy Burial is the most interesting of them and goes on in the evening of Maundy Thursday from the different churches in the Old Town to Plaza Moyúa, on the opposite side of the river. The procession is organised principally by the Brotherhood of the Holy True Cross, the oldest in Bilbao (was created in the 16th century), which has its home in the Church of the Saint Johns.

If your visit to Bilbao does not coincide with the Holy Week but you are still interested in this tradition, you can visit the Holy Week Museum (Mueso de Pasos de Bilbao) on Iturribide Street (Old Town), which hosts most of the images that are carried in procession during Easter. Each brotherhood has a stand in the museum showing its most identifying elements.
