One of the oldest churches in the city. Not that I would go to see this church specifically, but rather that the surrounding area has nice gardens where to take a rest in one of the benches in the shade. Many bars and cafeterias around...More

You have to visit this church. It's bright and beautifully decorated and designed. The organist is a genius.

Came across this old church almost hidden away in the corner of the Jardines de Albia Plaza. Decided to investigate. Glad I did. A beautiful, peaceful , smallish church. It seems to be the local Parish church & frequent services take place. Ornate furnishings. Well...More

Set back a little from one of the prettiest squares in the whole of Bilbao. A calm and light church.

This church was only one minute from our hotel and we could not walk past it all the time and not visit. The outside had been cleaned and looked good, but we found the inside a bit plain.

The Iglesia San Vicente is located just off the Jardines de Albio. It is a beautiful church with lovely music playing on the sound system when there is not a service. The artistic impression is also good.

I found this church more beautiful than the cathedral. Baroque alters on three sides, wonderfully carved and preserved. Atmospheric and a sense of a real community church used by and loved by the locals.
