A GREAT CITY WITH A LOT TO DISCOVER
Its more than two thousand years of history have made it a melting pot of cultures with one of the greatest historical and artistic legacies in Spain. 1.2 million people choose it as a tourist destination every year.
Romans, Muslims, Jews and Christians have left their mark on Zaragoza; hence the endless list of monuments to discovered. Those who have visited it have been able to live the experience of going for tapas in the Tubo neighbourhood after discovering such unique places as an Arab palace, a Roman forum, avant-garde bridges or a museum dedicated to the master of Spanish painting, Francisco de Goya.
On the banks of the Ebro River stands the unmistakable silhouette of the Basilica del Pilar, an icon par excellence of Zaragoza.
Built between the 17th and 18th centuries, the basilica represents the largest baroque place of worship in Spain and an important pilgrimage destination that is part of the Marian Route. It is home to authentic artistic treasures such as the Holy Chapel, with the image of the Virgin Mary, the alabaster altarpiece by Damián Forment, the magnificent Main Choir and the wonderful frescoes that decorate the domes, especially the two painted by Goya.
Don't miss the chance to visit it!
In its more than one thousand years of existence, the walls of the palace of La Aljafería have witnessed the history of Aragon. Even today, the stories and legends told by the troubadours to kings and queens are whispered through its patios and halls.
La Aljafería was built in the 11th century, a time when Zaragoza, known as the white city, was the capital of one of the most powerful Muslim Taifa kingdoms in the Iberian Peninsula, whose borders reached as far as the Mediterranean Sea.
La Aljafería is the only surviving example of a great building of Hispanic Islamic architecture from the Taifa period. Today, it is the seat of the Cortes of Aragon, having thus regained the political importance of the past.

Zaragoza's Parque Grande is much more than just a park. With more than 40 hectares, it is the most complex, complete and extensive park in Zaragoza.
This exuberant oasis of greenery and pure air, made up of thousands of plants and trees, is the lung of the city and a great open-air museum. It contains areas of pinewoods, large avenues, emblematic corners such as the Glorieta de la Princesa and small gardens. It also has more than twenty sculptures and various leisure areas such as terraces, sports fields, as well as a children's train.
The Parque Grande is currently one of the green areas most used by citizens to go for a run, ride a boat, have picnics or walk their dogs.
A real gift for your senses!
