Bilbao's urban expansion plan, developed in 1876, foresaw a park in this location but it was not until 1907 that the works began. Architect Ricardo Bastida and engineer Juan de Eguiraun were responsible for the park's layout. The park is named after local benefactress Casilda Iturrizar.
Both designers proposed an eclectic choice of style, combining Romantic and French gardens' styles, and so they mingled straight tree-lined avenues, a circular botanical garden, paths, ponds, and fountains... Other elements were added later: a sports area, children's leisure park and a pergola by Juan de Ispizua.
The Parque de Doña Casilda is the main park in town, with an area of 85,000 sqm. You will enjoy the views of some of the most important buildings in Bilbao (Iberdrola Tower or the Fine Arts Museum) surrounded by around 1,500 trees from 71 different species coming from the 5 continents.
The tour ends with a healthy breakfast, typical "pintxo" served with a hot or cold drink at a local bar.
