In the morning

Your first stop could be the Plaza de la Virgen Blanca. In its centre, you'll find the monument commemorating the Battle of Vitoria, the most international event in our history. You can also take a picture with the vegetal sculpture.

A few steps away, you'll find the Plaza España or Plaza Nueva, the location of the Tourist Office, in case you want to book a guided tour.

And in the Medieval Quarter you will be able to admire, among other monuments, the city wall and the Santa María Cathedral: visiting its restoration works is a unique experience. You'll also be surprised by museums such as the BIBAT Fournier Cards and Archaeology Museum.

At midday

How about a pintxos route? One option is to look up the bars and restaurants that took part in the last Álava Pintxo Celebration Week.

In the afternoon

You can explore the Neoclassical Ensanche, which includes Los Arquillos, among other interesting corners. Very nearby, La Florida awaits you, our most emblematic park, created in 1820.

And what better way to round off the day than by shopping in our local establishments.

For dinner, we suggest choosing one of the restaurants in the Guía Estrella (Star Guide)(Opens in new window).

Turn around, you'll never fail to be surprised in the Plaza de la Burullería: the view of Santa María, the Hurtado de Anda Tower (from the 15th century)… And the Cuesta de San Vicente will let you see a beautiful sunset, with views of the Vitoria Mountains and the New Cathedral.

And if you have more days

We encourage you to extend your stay: the city has a wide and varied range of accommodation for all tastes and budgets.
