If you’ve brushed up on your Spanish ready for a visit to Bilbao, sorry, but you’ve wasted your time, since they all speak their own unique language, but it really doesn’t matter because you’ll find it a very welcoming town with a highly localised gay scene, but a good one. Across the Merced Bridge is the pedestrian area of the Casco Antiguo. (Old town) By day the cobblestone streets are full of cafés with lots of people watching, and as night approaches the area gives way to a lively gay scene.
