Azkuna Zentroa

Azkuna Zentroa
  • Bus

This modern culture and leisure centre opened its doors on 18th May 2010. Thus the city recovered one of its most emblematic buildings, namely the old wine warehouse, with a project set in the socio-economic and urban transformation which left behind its industrial past. On 16th March 2015 AlhóndigaBilbao changed its name to Azkuna Zentroa. This is a tribute of the city to the person who was the “emotional” architect of this new Bilbao. It is the acknowledgement of Azkuna’s vision of a building which had been neglected for over 30 years. To quote Iñaki Azkuna’s own words: “It will be the meeting point of Culture in Bilbao and a catalyser of co-existence in the City". Source: azkunazentroa.eus
