Eat your weight in pintxos

Who hasn’t heard about pintxos – the Basque “tapas”?!?!

When in Bilbao you must do as the Basque do and txikitear. Txikiteo means hopping from bar to bar enjoying a small glass of wine (txikitos) and savouring delicious pintxos. This is how the locals socialise and have a good time.

Some of the best and most traditional pintxos bars can be found in the Casco Viejo. And make sure you don’t miss Plaza Nueva, where you find some of the most popular pintxos bars. Our favourite? Café Bar Bilbao.
