Bilbao has many churches that are open to the public. The Cathedral of St. James (Santiago) was named after the city's official patron saint and dates back to the 14th Century although the main facade and tower were designed in the 1800s. The Basilica de Begona is one of the most symbolic religious buildings in the city and the Iglesia de San Nicolas is an excellent example of Baroque architecture.
The most popular choice of dining in Bilbao is Pintxos, which is the Basque name for tapas. The Basque love of gastronomy means that these are often much tastier then their Spanish equivalent. The Plaza Neuva has many bars and restaurants that serve Pintxos and plenty of places to go for a drink after dinner. The busiest times to visit this area are Friday and Saturday nights.
