Overview
More
Azkuna Zentroa houses a cultural and leisure space within one of the most emblematic buildings of the city, offering a wide variety of events for anyone who visits. A meeting point where you can share, learn and enjoy the different cultural, leisure and sports proposals aimed at all target publics either individually, in groups or as a family. The 43,000 square metres of Azkuna Zentroa have been erected in the old wine warehouse of the city. It is a building with a modern character where past, present and future blend together, declared "Heritage of Cultural Interest" by the Basque Government in 1999. The façades and part of the space, designed by the Bilbao architect Ricardo Bastida at the beginning of the 20th century, have been maintained and renovated. The exterior classicism contrasts with the unique, innovative and sober interior space designed by Philippe Starck, where the life and energy of Bilbao are crystallized. Exhibitions, concerts, conferences, children's workshops, physical activities of all kinds, reading area, a place to have a coffee, etc. The offer of Azkuna Zentroa is daily and highly varied thanks to its multidiscipline programme and extended opening hours. It doesn't matter whether your visit is a one-off or if you live in a nearby geographical area, you will always find an attractive proposal that suits you which you will thoroughly enjoy.

This interesting building is located right in Bilbao centre. It offers exhibitions, a cinema theater, cafes, some shops. The building itself has a touch of Philippe Stark, which makes it interesting when old building style meets a modern one. If you are around, surely worth...More

This old wine barrel stock building has been transformed in a multi-purpose centre. Philip Starck chose to put three separate brick blocks inside the old walls which are lightly balancing on pilars decorated by several artists. Though inside it is a bit dark it is...More

Unusual space... Not sure I'd rate it as highly as some previous reviews but we did enjoy a pleasant hour in the Cafe on the rooftop. I think the main roof terrace would have been great but I couldn't find my way to it. It...More
