Now transformed into an urban landmark in the historic centre of Bilbao, Plaza Nueva square is one of the main hubs of the city's social life. The colonnade in this neo-classical monumental site is home to alternating shops, bars, restaurants and cafés where it's almost impossible not to stop and enjoy the lively atmosphere of the square. Every Sunday it features a street market for collectors of books and second-hand records, minerals and fossils, coins and stamps, arts and crafts and much more. And during the festivity of Santo Tomás on 21 December, it's also the setting for an attractive farmers' market full of typical products from all over Euskadi. The square was inaugurated in 1851, after taking 65 years to build.
