Hôtels à Zaragoza

Zaragoza

The city on the Ebro river has a surprising historic heritage from many different periods. From Roman settlements to 21th century architecture, Zaragoza's streets have witnessed two thousand years of history.

What to visit?

Zaragoza's past is so rich that going all over the city in order to get to know it needs time and a good tourist plan. We have created a selection of some the most important points of interest to go from our hotels in Zaragoza and not miss anything during our visit.

We will start our visit to Zaragoza in the Teatro de Caesaraugusta (Caesaraugusta Theatre) and the Museo del Foro, from the 1st century. The theatre has a capacity of 6,000 spectators. We will continue our route through the Aljafería, a fortified medieval Islamic palace of great interest from the 9th century. It consists of the Torre del Trovador (Troubadour Tower), the mosque, and the Patio de Santa Isabel (Saint Isabel courtyard).

We follow our steps to the Ebro river, and from there, we get to the Plaza del Pilar (Pilar Square). In this square we will see La Seo, the Lonja de Mercaderes, the town hall, and the Basílica de Nuestra Señora del Pilar. The Catedral de San Salvador (Saint Salvador Cathedral), also known as 'La Seo', was built in the 12th century. Both inside and outside, the Romanic, Mudejar, Baroque, and Neoclassic influences are notorious. The Lonja de los Mercaderes (Merchant's Market) is one of the best examples of Aragonese Renaissance in Zaragoza.

Zaragoza's crown jewel is the Basílica de Nuestra Señora del Pilar. The Renaissance influences are evident on the façade. Its interior, clearly Baroque, holds an impressive Gothic altarpiece. We should not leave the Basílica without admiring its Renaissance chorus and the paintings of Goya and Bayeu on the domes. We can also admire an essential collection of oils from Goya in the Patio de la Infanta, close to the Plaza del Pilar.

Across the river, from one of our hotels in Zaragoza, we can visit the EXPO 2008 facilities, nowadays holding Zaragoza's Municipality and Government of Aragón main headquarters.

What to eat?

The tapas area is known as El Tubo (the Pipe). We can stop there and savour some 'migas' (breadcrumbs, usually mixed with some pork sausage, grapes and garlic), a 'salmorejo' (cold vegetables soup, similar to gazpacho), or roasted calf. As a dessert, we recommend some 'adoquines' (large hard candy) or 'guindas al marrasquino' (maraschino cherries), which you will also find in our hotels in Zaragoza.
