The 3Walks Office is located in a unique place, in a 19th Century Palace House, above the charismatic Bar el Tilo, known for its classical music and the frescoes of Juan de Aranoa, in an emblematic place of the city of Bilbao, opposite the Teatro Arriaga, in the Arenal Square. 3Walks takes its name symbolically from the place where it is located, a small corner of the town of Bilbao where three walks converge: the Paseo de los Curas, through which walked the priests and the elderly, the Paseo de los Señoritos, popular with students; and lastly, the Paseo de la Alpargata, the closest to the Bilbao estuary, frequented by artisans, in those time dressmakers. These three walks have been for more than a hundred years witnesses of meetings, exchanges of information, knowledge, and intangible culture and heritage of the city, whose history and meaning makes it the ideal place to start our activity.
