Come to Zaragoza, one of Spain’s major cities. The capital of the Region of Aragon is located on the banks of the Ebro River, halfway between Madrid and Barcelona. There are many reasons to come to this open, friendly city. Take note:
2,000 years of history. You will find an impressive monumental legacy in its streets, as Romans, Muslims, Jews and Christians left their mark on this place: ruins of Roman civilisation such as the Theatre; the Aljafería Palace; Mudejar-style churches, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO; Baroque jewels such as the basilica of Pilar; the work of the genius Francisco de Goya… And also, the site of the modern Expo 2008. If you are an art-lover, Zaragoza is your city.
The pleasure of a stroll. Walking around Zaragoza is a tradition and a luxury within everyone’s reach. Dress comfortably and explore the streets. This city is compact, ideal to wander on foot, and its boulevards, avenues and pedestrian areas are perfect for a stroll. This is also the best way to admire its monuments.
Routes and outings in the surrounding area. Discover the surroundings of Zaragoza, rich in landscapes, villages, spas, cultural routes and nature. From Fuendetodos, the birthplace of brilliant artist Francisco de Goya, to Calatayud, where you will find the Piedra Monastery nature area. Follow the Moncayo Route, to the province’s highest mountain, just a few kilometres from Tarazona, a Mudejar town packed with art. We would also recommend a visit to the Cinco Villas region, with its medieval atmosphere. These are a few outings that you will enjoy, less than an hour and a half away.
