Things to Do in Zaragoza

Connected by high-speed train to both Barcelona and Madrid and straddling the mighty Ebro River, Zaragoza is Spain’s fifth biggest city, equally renowned for its impressive Roman ruins, as its modern shopping complexes and innovative gastronomy.

Start your tour of Zaragoza at the central Plaza España or Plaza del Pilar, from where it’s a short walk to top landmarks like the Basilica de Nuestra Señora del Pilar (Basilica of Our Lady of the Pillar), the La Seo Cathedral and the Ayuntamiento (City Hall), then pay a visit to the magnificent Aljafería Palace, one of Spain’s most exquisite Islamic buildings, or explore the city’s many museums. Zaragoza is also a hot destination for foodies and there’s an excellent selection of tapas bars and restaurants dotted around Plaza de La Seo and along the scenic Ebro riverfront.
