Bilbao - Ayuntaminento, The City Hall
The City Hall of Bilbao is located on the right bank of the Estuary of Bilbao across the City Hall bascule bridge that links it to the central Abando district. The building was built in the former site of a convent, in the district of Uribarri, in 1892 by Joaquin Rucoba. It was built in Baroque style. One of the highlights of the building is the Arab hall, a richly decorated hall that follows the Neo-Mudejar style and resembles the decorations found in the Alhambra of Granada. The hall is used for official receptions and weddings.
