Overview

To get to the Pérgola (bandstand) you have to go to the Doña Casilda Iturrizar Park, or the "Duck Park" as it is commonly known. There you find an oval plaza, surrounded by columns and rose gardens. The columns are in two styles. The first is typical of the region with brick pillars decorated with Moorish Mudejar designs, and the other is the twin columned Baroque style. The city organizes a lot of open-air concerts here at the Pérgola. Every weekend you can hear classical music concerts or bands that you can dance to with a partner. You can also hear a variety of music from the various contemporary bands that come to town during the Semana Grande (Big Week) festival in August, or watch the spectacular coloured fountain. If you are in town during the Bilbao International "Tropikala" Festival, come enjoy the Caribbean and African bands and take the opportunity to learn a dance step or two from a teacher.
