How to find us?
Bilbao is located in the North of Spain, and it is well connected to most European capital cities. In the past, Bilbao was mainly an industrial city but thanks to the arrival of its famous Guggenheim Museum, it has gradually turned into the cultural and gastronomic hotspot that it is now well-known for.
Moving around Bilbao is easy, either on foot or by bus, tram or metro. Your coordinator will be pleased to give you directions or provide you with information to make the most of this vibrant and historical city.
Our iGin Centre is located in the heart of Bilbao, right beside the iconic Doña Casilda Park, offering you an excellent opportunity to wonder around and relax before and after your visit. We also have several hotels and restaurants nearby and we are located within a short walking distance to Gran Vía, Bilbao´s main street and shopping district. Zubiarte Shopping Centre is opposite the clinic, offering you not only great shopping options but also a cinema and a range of restaurants. Ask your coordinator for information on these and other attractions, such as museums and leisure centres in the area.
