Next to the Ebro River and with more than 2,000 years of history is the city of Zaragoza, halfway between Madrid and Barcelona. It is one of the most visited and best-known cities in Spain, with the Basilica of Nuestra Señora del Pilar and the General Military Academy, among many other places of interest. With more than 665,000 inhabitants, it is the sixth largest city in Spain and one of the richest in terms of history and heritage.
Its connections also work in its favour, as it can be reached in less than an hour and a half by AVE high-speed train from both Madrid and Barcelona. All this makes the ancient Caesaragusta - its Roman name - a jewel to be discovered in which you can enjoy our hotels B&B HOTEL Zaragoza Centro and B&B HOTEL Zaragoza Plaza Mozart.
Its location is a very important point in its favour. In the heart of Aragon and halfway, almost exactly, between the two major Spanish cities, Zaragoza is an extremely well-connected transit point. It takes about an hour and a half by AVE high-speed train from both Madrid and Barcelona. If we opt for the car, three hours separate the Aragonese capital from both cities. It also has an airport for those who prefer this faster means of transport.
Zaragoza is the living history of Spain. Its Roman past can be seen in the ancient Roman walls as you walk towards the city centre. Although, of the more than 3,000 metres it once had, only 80 are still standing today. Another of its jewels is its Caesaraugusta Theatre, as well as the Roman baths, the forum and the river port. All of these can be visited on a single route.
But Zaragoza was not only important in Roman times, it was also important during our Arab past. In fact, here we can see the Aljafería Palace, also known as the little Alhambra. Mudejar style and built in the 11th century, this place is a must-see that cannot be missed.
Although we all know that when we think of Zaragoza we think of the Pilar. The Basilica del Pilar and the Plaza del Pilar are two must-sees on our visit to the city. In the Basilica, you can also see some frescoes painted by one of its most noble and renowned neighbours, Francisco de Goya.
If what we want is to have a drink in a good atmosphere, the Tubo neighbourhood has it all. In the old quarter with its small and typical bars, its streets are always crowded with people. It is the ideal place to go out for wine, beers and tapas and raciones for dinner.
If you have time, don't forget to visit the Catedral del Salvador, its stone bridge, the arch of the Deán or the magnificent Parque Grande José Antonio Labordeta.
In addition to the beauty and atmosphere of the city, there is also a gastronomy to match. In Zaragoza they boast, and rightly so, of cooking the best roast lamb in Spain. You can't miss this carnivorous delicacy, which can only be found in Aragon.
You will find many restaurants where you can try migas or lomo a la zaragozana or borage with potatoes are other excellent representatives of the area's gastronomic quality.
