Welcome to Bilbao, a city to enjoy
Barandiaran Kristau Alkartea (Pax Romana) & UnescoEtxea, Welcome you to Bilbao, a small city providing all the main features of comfort and general welfare found only at bigger urbia, only lacking their usual big problems. All hotels serving the congress are placed at walking distance to the congress' premises (Palacio Euskalduna, see map), let alone the Sheraton (4), that sits just across the park. There is the cutest and most convenient tram system running to and from the Old Town along Bilbao's water way (Nervion River) that stops just in front of the Euskalduna complex. In case of an unexpected case of running wild... don't panic, just ask for "la Gran Via". The "Gran Via" avenue, that crosses the city as an (aprox) east-west axis (marked with green dots in the map above), is a main reference for orientation.
