A journey through the evolution of Bilbao over the centuries, with a special accent on its people, heritage and lifestyles. We will get lost among the smells, colours and textures of the largest covered market in Europe, the Green point par excellence of Bilbao: the Riber Market. All fresh and local products, for us it is like being in heaven!
If there is a material linked to the history of Bilbao for many centuries that would undoubtedly be iron. By the time the Romans arrived, the metal was being already extracted near the old town and at the beginning of World War I, 13% of the iron world-wide was extracted in the Basque Country, most of it close to the Ibaizabal-Nervion River, the one which crosses Bilbao. Discover the hidden remains of this activity without having to leave Bilbao, they are closer than you think.
