Shopping in Central Bilbao
Central Bilbao is host to the "backbone" of Bilbao's commerce.
Department stores, traditional shops, smaller boutiques and international firms are all here.
Most of the city's shopping is centred round the Plaza Moyúa area, where the streets of Calle Rodriguez Arias and Calle Iparraguirre are lined with stores and boutiques.
Gran Via is home to department stores like El Corte Inglés, whereas you will find for high end fashion stores and boutiques in the Calle San Martin.
Most shops in Bilbao are open from 10am, with many shops taking a long break for lunch during the siesta hours, and reopening round 4pm or 5pm until as late at 8pm.
Shopping hours are shorter on Saturdays while on Sundays stores are closed.
