How to find us?

We are situated in Bilbao located in the north of Spain, it´s well connected to all other European capitals.  Bilbao is known as an industrial city, however, over the years it has changed dramatically and now it is known as a hot spot for tourism.  One of the most noticeable changes is the Guggenheim Museum, which are just only minutes to get to the heart of the city.

It very easy to move around Bilbao, with many options to get around by foot, bus, tram or metro, but don´t worry your coordinator will help you with any directions or information you need.

The iGin centre is located in the heart of the city in the symbolic, Doña Casilda Park, a place where you can relax before and after visiting us.  Also, near there are several hotels, restaurants, we are adjacent to the Gran Via (a long beautiful stretch of road), so if you like shopping you need go no further.  However, if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle you could find yourself in the cinema at the Zubiarte shopping centre or visiting the local museum.  (The coordinator can provide all this information).
