The Fernando Buesa Arena, formerly known as the Araba Arena, was renamed in honour of Fernando Buesa Blanco, a socialist parliamentarian assassinated at the university in the city of Vitoria-Gasteiz. It was inaugurated in 1991 before being renovated in 2011-2012 to increase its capacity. It now has a capacity for 15.600 spectators.
The Fernando Buesa Arena is a multi-purpose hall in Vitoria that has 2.700 parking spaces for spectators.
If you can't find a parking space inside the arena itself, you can find limited free parking spaces in the streets surrounding the pavilion.
It should be noted that on match or event days it is often difficult to find a parking space, as there are thousands of people attending at the same time and many of them opt for the car as a method of transport to get there.
Another option we recommend is to book a parking space. From the Parkimeter website or app, you can book your parking space in advance, so you don't have to worry about finding a free space. Here] you can compare and book the car park that best suits your needs.
Further into the city of Vitoria-Gasteiz, you can also park on its streets. However, the parking spaces are regulated parking, which means that you will have to pay for parking at the following times:
Monday to Friday: from 10:00 h to 14:00 h and from 16:00 h to 20:00 h / Saturdays: from 10:00 h to 14:00 h.
The OTA (Traffic and Parking Ordinance) in Vitoria-Gasteiz has 3 different zones: blue, green and orange. The green zone is preferably for residents, who may park for an unlimited period of time. Other users must park with a ticket. The blue zone is a rotation zone that allows any user to park with a time limit. And finally, the orange zone, a high rotation zone, allows any user to park with a more restrictive time limit.
On the other hand, free parking can be found in the residential zones. However, the number of parking spaces available is limited and they are further away from the central and busy areas.
The Fernando Buesa Arena is a multi-purpose hall in the Spanish Basque Country used for various purposes, but mainly by the basketball club Saski Baskonia, which plays in the top division of the Spanish league.
The pavilion is one of the largest in northern Spain and has hosted international sporting events of various disciplines, such as the European Basketball Championship. It is also capable of hosting exhibitions, concerts and even festivals.
