Barakaldo, with 100.313 inhabitants, is the second largest city, after Bilbao. The town had a great iron and steel and manufacturing tradition in the 19th and 20th centuries, and has now managed to transform itself into an important city of services to become an attractive business centre with several shopping areas that attract thousands of people from the rest of Bizkaia and neighbouring areas. This commercial strength has allowed it to develop a very interesting gastronomic offer at all levels. We invite you to discover it on different means of transport. Barakaldo is a 1-minute metro-ride and an 8-minute walk from the BEC.
