A rich blend of the historic and modern, Zaragoza sits on the banks of the Ebro River. Stroll in the center of town near San Miguel's pedestrian ways or around the Plaza de los Sitios, where you find boutiques, markets and souvenir shops. A center for gastronomy, Zaragoza offers food and drink for every budget and taste. But tapas is a must! In 2008, Zaragoza hosted the International Exhibition; the Water Tower, Bridge Pavilion and River Aquarium show off of the city's avant-garde architecture.

Called off here on our way from Zaragoza to Cuenca after recommendations from friends and we weren't disappointed. It took approx 2 hours to walk round the park area which has amazing Fountains and views, although lots of steps do not suitable for some people. After the park we visited the monastery which took about an hour. The guided tours are in Spanish but each room has English explanations which were sufficient for us. We also had coffees, sandwiches, ice cream etc and thought the prices were very reasonable for such a tourist spot. Highly recommended .

We visited many cathedrals in Spain and this was, by far, our favorite. Lots of details to get lost in and a great place to understand the rich history behind the city. The place also offers a ride up to one of the main towers for 3€/person with some of the best views.

Unique Museum in Europe dedicated to the art of origami
One of our all-time favorite museums. There are two other museums in the world dedicated to traditional origami: one in Japan and one in South Korea. This one has rotating displays. We were the only guests on the Thursday morning when we visited, so it was easy to explore and linger and view artworks from each side.

Inside, this Cathedral is the most beautiful and impressive buidling in Zaragoza, more so than the Basilica del Pilar. Exquisite vaulted ceilings in high-Gothic style, ornate chapels, spectacular altar pieces The tapestry museum. Unfortunately the whole thing closes in the aftrernoon, like so many places in Zaragoza, so plan your visit in the morning.

A lovely intreasting museum, with lots of history next to a working fire stn, all housed in a historic building,
The museum is staffed by retired firefighters with a lifetime of knowledge.
There is an english handout if you speak no spanish, but most of the exhibition is visual, the video is very good and its great to see how proud they are of what they do.
Assa serving london firefighter i was made to feel very welcome and they went out there way to translate,
This aside i would recomend a visit as the building is intresting too, its cheap and a nice place to visit.

I really didn't know what to expect going to visit this museum and what I found was magic! The visit is very well organized, each Of the Faroles being lit one by one with a clear explanation. The Faroles and the crystal rosary are splendid works of art! Don't miss it when you visit Zaragoza!

I'd never heard of Gargallo before this visit, & not normally a huge fan of sculpture, but I thoroughly enjoyed this museum & found it one of the most interesting things I saw in Zaragoza. Not only did Gargallo make traditional bronze figures, but also very beautiful abstract type art. Each room had info cards in several languages so you could understand what the room was showing. There was a room showing how he made the sculpture by firstly making a cardboard cut out of it. Not very busy at all when I visited in April mid week. Fascinating & something not to be missed when in Zaragoza.

This castle is from Moorish times originally, but taken over by the Spanish kings from the reconquista it has also 15th century gothic and renaissance features. Part of the huge building has been modernised and is in use as government office. The part that can be visited shows the Moorish courtyards with beautiful lay out and stoneworks, exquisite ceilings etc. The medieval/renaissance rooms are mostly upstairs and the main thing to see are the beautiful ornate ceilings, no furniture. The only downside we thought was the fact that the renovation was so thorough (perhaps because of the offices part) that it looks like a new building in many places.

This patio was located inside of a modern building near our hotel. We have spent perhaps 5 minutes in there, not much to see, no other tourists inside and I thought it wasn't worth visiting alone if you're not around the area.
