Don Diego

In a city of such anarchic growth as Bilbao, it is difficult to delimit its centre. But undoubtedly, geographically right or wrong, the statue of the founder of Bilbao, today higher than ever, has the right to occupy it.

The bronze by Mariano Benlliure, also author of the bas-reliefs which appear at the base has, since 1890, recalled Don Diego López de Haro, V Lord of Biscay, at almost four metres in height.

Realized in Rome in different pieces, and after successive sitings in the Plaza Nueva and that of the Santos Juanes, it is currently found situated in the Plaza Circular, not looking out to sea in spite of the strict conditions of its initial commissioning.
