SBC-Day 7: Lezama to Bilbao-11km

Day 7: Lezama to Bilbao is a short stage with a difficult climb up Mount Avril. During the ascent, you will follow along a medieval road. On the descent, you pass the Begoña Basilica a temple built in the sixteenth century over a primitive hermitage, in honour of the patron saint of Bizkaia. The devotion to the Virgin of Begoña makes the pilgrimage to the Basilica of Begoña a tradition. Then continue, eventually arriving at Plaza de Unamuno. It is located in the old quarter of Bilbao. The Cathedral of Bilbao is a definite stop, dedicated to the Apostle Santiago.
