Discover more about Bilbao: Unamuno and the Basque Museum

Next Thursday Spanish language students from Instituto Hemingway can visit The Basque Museum to learn more about Basque culture and customs. The museum’s permanent collections depict topics such as the history, archaeology and ethnography of Vizcaya, the maritime world, fishing and trade, pastoral life, crafts, textiles, pottery, weapons and furniture.

The Basque Museum is situated a short distance from Instituto Hemingway, in Plaza Unamuno, you can get there on foot. Plaza Unamuno is a central space named after one of Bilbao’s most significant figures within the world of literature and philosophy. Unamuno was born in one of the properties which can still be seen in Calle Ronda, near the square. On top of a large column, the statue of this great Bilbao author - sculpted by Victoriano Macho - observes the city life below. The past and the present coexist in this busy square - close to Calzadas de Mallona. From here the roads lead to Calle La Cruz, with the impressive Santos Juanes church, or towards Calle Iturribide, a street filled with typical bars, that at weekends is a social hot spot for young people.

The Basque Museum is free of charge on Thursdays.

Join other students and improve your Spanish language whilst learning more about the culture of an interesting nation with Instituto Hemingway.
