Vitoria-Gasteiz is the most modest of all the Basque cities. It doesn’t have a fancy beach like San Sebastian nor a Guggenheim Museum like Bilbao and because of this it is often overlooked. But don’t be so quick to skip it. Vitoria offers visitors many of the same things other Basque cities do but it also offers things they don’t.
The wall of Vitoria was a walled enclosure fortified in the Middle Ages in the town of Vitoria. It was built in the late 11th century. It retains about half of the total volume, and was recovered in the early 21st century in a performance that received the award given by the organization Europa Nostra in 2010.
The Fine Arts Museum of Alava is located in the Augustin-Zulueta Palace in the nice Paseo de Fray Francisco, very next to the center of Vitoria-Gasteiz. A building of 100 years that emphasizes for its beauty surrounded from gardens, willows and staircases.
At the end of the 18th century next to it la Plaza de España or Plaza Nueva was built by the architect <a href="/pages/w/1424951614419660">Justo Antonio de Olaguibel</a> from Vitoria. Due to the construction of the new square the old one became a meeting point for the inhabitants of the city.
