Pintxos Route Downtown Bilbao
Why is the food in the Basque Country so good? We are going to find out thanks to this tapas route downtown Bilbao.
Tapas, or Pintxos as they are called in the Basque Country, are ususally eaten in bars or taverns as a small snack while hanging out with friends or relatives. They have a strong socializing component and they are usually regarded as a cornerstone of the Spanish culture and society. Together with your delegate materials, you will be given 3 vouchers to exchange for free pintxos and drinks in a selected number of bars & taverns downtown Bilbao. This way, you will be able to enjoy a typical Basque evening with the rest of Biospain 2016 delegates and keep the networking on!Time:
Downtown Bilbao. We will provide a map with the different locations where you will be able to exchange your vouchers for drinks and pintxos.
