AlhondigaBilbao houses, in one of the most representative buildings of the city, a cultural and entertainment center with a wide range for all the people visiting space. A meeting place to share, learn and enjoy individually, in groups or families of different cultural events, entertainment and sports for all ages.
The 43,000 square meters of AlhondigaBilbao rise in old wine store in town. A Modernist building was declared "of cultural interest" by the Basque Government in 1999, in which past, present and future merge. The facades of the space and designed by architect Ricardo Bastida in the early twentieth century, have been maintained and restored. The exterior classicism contrasts with the urban, unique, innovative and modest interior space designed by Philippe Starck, and the life and energy of Bilbao crystallize.
