SQUARE OF

CORAZÓN DE MARÍA BILBAO LA VIEJA


SQUARE OF

CORAZÓN DE MARÍA BILBAO LA VIEJA

The renewed square of Corazón de María is now open to all the residents of Bilbao La Vieja once the redevelopment of this urban space has concluded. Thanks to the spaciousness and versatility of the different spaces that have been developed, this square is set to become the hub of activity of the neighbourhood of Bilbao La Vieja.


The developed space has a surface area of 7130 square metres and modifications have been included in the project to introduce improvements and suggestions collected during the citizen participation project carried-out. For three years, the square´s subsoil has undergone archaeological excavations that have revealed the remains of a well-preserved 16th century Franciscan convent. Part of the ruins are visible from square and the rest is underground and protected.
