The Cathedral of Football is in Bilbao

“Bilbao without the San Mamés football stadium would be like Paris without the Eiffel Tower”. These words of the legendary coach of Athletic Bilbao Luis Fernández seem exaggerated but the truth is that the stadium is unique and is surrounded by a mystique that makes it known as the Cathedral. The history of BYPILLOW San Mamés has always been linked to this sports temple considered a fundamental monument of the city.

The Zubizuri, the suspension bridge of Bilbao and the skyscrapers that are in front of it (11 of 12)

If what you are looking for in your travels is to find the perfect fusion between tradition and modernity, Bilbao is your city. The capital of Biscay is surrounded by green fields, fresh air, and a sky that, despite being almost always cloudy, has a captivating charm. And not for nothing, it is considered one of the most beautiful and emblematic cities in northern Spain.

So, if what you are looking for is a hotel in Bilbao, or more specifically an accomodation in San Mames, we want to give you a clue that might help you decide. If what you are looking for are services, comfort and cover every one of those little needs that you miss when you go on a trip, BYPILLOW may have just that for you.

We like to define our hotels in Bilbao as a place where you can truly feel that it is possible to give meaning to the concept of “From home to home“.

You will find everything you need to feel at ease and at home in our hostels in Bilbao so you will want to come back and enjoy with your loved ones in each of our family hotels in Bilbao.

And if you want to come on your own or as a couple to feel part of one of the most cosmopolitan cities on the peninsula, take a look at this boutique hotel in Bilbao. Look out the window and let it make you want to stroll around to see its iconic buildings and enjoy a pintxo with your favorite drink.

Let’s see if we can satisfy your curiosity with some interesting facts. Did you know that the San Mames soccer field is known among fans as “The Cathedral“? Just with this striking name, you will know that you are in front of one of the most important stadiums in Spain. What’s more, it was completely renovated in 2013, a date that almost coincided with the celebration of its centenary: 100 years since its inauguration, which culminated with a celebration in style! And, as if that were not enough, in 2015 the San Mamés stadium was awarded by UEFA itself as one of the best sports buildings in the world.

With all this recognition it is normal that the stadium itself has become a meeting place for soccer lovers and even for the citizens of the capital who come to enjoy this impressive building, which also has a tourist and recreational area where you can try some of the most typical dishes of Basque gastronomy.

Can you think of a more authentic way to experience soccer? Be sure to take a tour of its facilities and take advantage of the trip to stay in one of the hotels in the center of San Mames as BYPILLOW Irala and BYPILLOW Amari  to not miss anything and record memories of your visit to the Cathedral of soccer.
