Gran Vía (Grand Avenue), Bilbao
Moyua Square is almost in the middle of Gran Avenue. It is 1,642 feet from the beginning and 2,628 feet from its end. The statue of the Sacred Heart aligns with the spire of the Basilica of Bogata, reminiscent of the Axe Historique in Paris, France.
The Gran Avenue shopping district includes adjoining streets. The area has banks, department stores, international and luxury brands, and high-end stores. Fashion accessories, clothes, jewelry, designer goods, footwear, household goods, and gourmet foods are all there. The district can be divided into three zones.
The adjoining streets around Circular Square, Buenos Aires Street, Principe Street, and Villarias Street offer distinct shopping experiences. The middle zone, between Circular Square and Moyua Square, includes the cross streets of Marques del Puerto and Astarloa. Parallel streets are Colon de Larreategi and Rodriguez Arias.
The Moyua Square and Sacred Heart Square connect to the busy adjacent streets of Ercilla (pedestrian), Maximo Aguirre, Doctor Achucarro, Licenciado Poza, and Iparraguire.
