We were extremely satisfied with the lead. Mrs. Heuschmid is a very likeable woman, who with her extensive knowledge has given us a lot of background information about Bilbao, the Basques and the Basque Country. The guided tour through the old town was very beautiful and impressive despite the rain. We would like to thank Mrs. Heuschmid and can only recommend a guided tour with her!

Andrea Heuschmid did very well. She has given us a vivid account of the changes that have taken place in Bilbao over the last 30 years, without forgetting the current problems.

Description

The former industrial metropolis of Bilbao has entered the new millennium almost completely renewed. The Guggenheim Museum has brought the capital of Bizkaia into the focus of world public attention over the past 15 years. The deindustrialization of Bilbao in the 1980s led to a restructuring that led to the expansion of services and a tourism boom that swept across the city like a wave.

The tour through the historic old town and the San Francisco district focuses on the 1936 war and the effects of the 40-year-old Franco dictatorship. We convey impressions of the social history of the city, the living conditions of the miners and the new social movements. We talk about the current situation of the Basque language and lose critical remarks about the consequences of mass tourism.

Our way leads through the historical streets of the old town with its distinctive pub and business life to the market hall on the river. Here, in medieval Bilbao, was the hub of social life.

Over the city's only bridge for centuries, San Antón, we reach the other side of the river in the marginalized districts of Bilbao La Vieja and San Francisco. Here, only a few remnants testify to the iron ore mining that characterized these two districts until the 1970s. The majority of migrants today live in these barrios.

On the way there is time for questions and comments.

Gut, dass der teilweise heftige Regen Ihren positiven Eindruck nicht schmälern konnte. Immerhin konnten wir uns ein paar Mal Unterschlupf suchen, was den Gesprächen allerdings keinen Abbruch tat. Haben Sie vielen Dank!
