Nice square, loved the family atmosphere on a Sunday morning. Good to watch people meeting, kids playing, card swapping etc on a Sunday morning.

A beautiful old square in the heart of the old town. A perfect place to simple pintxos with friends. Try Gure Txoki or Cafe Bar Bilbao.

A good place to walk around and have an aperitif or two accompanied by a delicious pintxo on your own or in company.

A great place to sit and watch the world go by, surrounded by cafe bars used by the locals and almost all have pintxos (tapas) on display. There was a festival to celebrate the start of Lent, with local cultur in abundance.

Located in the old city, this is a major plaza with multiple bars/restaurants. Great meeting place, or just to enjoy a sunny day.

We visited Plaza Nueva a couple of time during our stay - by far the best was a Sunday morning. The square was buzzing with family life - from bric-a-brac stalls to football card trading to books and gifts. There are numerous bars as you would expect all serving excellent pintxo!

Even in February the bars were full and atmospheric. The main square had children playing in it - in summer no doubt the outside space is more atmospheric but at this time of year you get a sense of how the locals live. Very well!
