    Mercado de la Ribera

    by timtregenza Written May 25, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Get down to the market by the river in the casco viejo.

    You need to go Tuesday - Saturday in the morning.

    Ground floor - fish, 1st floor meat, second floor vegetables and fruit.

    This is one of the largest indoor markets in Europe, and the fish hall in particular is worth a visit.

    Tram stop - Ribera.

    Industrial Architecture

    by timtregenza Written Dec 19, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    For those interested in industrial architecture, a trip down the river (e.g. on the Pil Pil) will be of great interest.

    You can walk down either bank, or get the boat from the riverside close to the Guggenheim.

    Getting Fit

    If you hang around here long enough, and walk to most of your destinations, you'd probably get in pretty good shape. This is a hilly city, especially along the outside edges. Many streets incline or decline, and some are steep enough to require steps!

    Oh! What a marvellous place to visit!
    The site seeing from this point can be spectacular, with the blue coloured water, the strong wind, the beaches, and so on.
    You can take a pleasant walk by a narrow path up to the little church in the hill. Please, if you are a woman and you want to get married, ask kindly your boyfriend to play the bell... In a short future he will marry, but be sure you play it too!

    Sunday morning and no good...

    Sunday morning and no good plans? Stop by at the 'Plaza Nueva' in Bilbao, there is a flea market full of second-hand books, records, coins and extremely strange stuff! Not as unpredictible as the Rastro in Madrid, but smaller and less crazy. Take a walk around and afterwards have some 'pinchos' and wine at one of the bars around the square.

    The motto of the Bilbao council seems to be "when in doubt, put up a statue". See how many you can spot!
