Main Tourist Attractions and Internet for Tourists in Zaragoza

    Categories // Internet Wifi, Interest Tourist Places in Spain

    In 2008, Expo Zaragoza was held and from that moment the city is considered one of the biggest urban destinations in Spain, only led by cities like Madrid, Barcelona, Seville, Granada, Valencia or Bilbao. Are you preparing your next trip to Spainenlace and planning to visit Zaragozaenlace? Only few days from the biggest celebration of the city, we visit its main tourist attractions and events that make the city one of the emerging Spanish destinations for congress tourism.

    The Basilica of Our Lady of the Pillar is the centre of the city as well as the temple where Zaragoza Patron rests and commonly known as La Pilarica (the Lady of the Pillar) and will become the protagonist of an intense schedule with over 1.500 entertainment and cultural events. This year, Pillar Festivitiesenlace will be held between the 4th and 13th October, the city expects an economic impact of over 180 million euros and the creation of over 3.000 new employments. The Basilica of the Lady Pillar is one of the most relevant pilgrimage centres of Spain and also relevant for Catholicism as well as being a pilgrimage place for any traveller in Zaragozaenlace. This baroque temple is characterised by hosting important pieces of art throughout history, such as the famous Main Retable of 16th Century or the frescos found in its domes and cupolas made by Goya.


    If you like art, we recommend you continue visiting its rich Mudejar heritage: The Cathedral of San Salvador or commonly called “la Seo” was built where the main mesquite was previously built; the Aljaferia Palace which is the headquarters of Cortes de Aragon (regional parliament for the Spanish autonomous community of Aragon) and the only building preserved by Hispanic-Islamic architecture from Taifa period. You will find a beautiful Taifal Palace, similar to Umayyad castles of Syria or Jordan, lovely landscaped porches and its famous Torre del Tovador (troubadour tower) that is the defence tower of this architectural set declared World Heritage Site in 2001.

    Have a walk across the remains of Caesaruagusta wall, this is the name given to Zaragoza in roman times; the Lonja de Mercaderes (Traders Exchange), the first renaissance building in the city; the Stone Bridge, the oldest bridge preserved on the Ebro River or the Real Maestranza (Royal Calvalry) complete an interesting route across the historical-monumental heritage of Zaragoza.

    Do not miss the new public spaces that emerged after Expo 2008. The Water Parkenlace is an enormous green place of 120 hectares including services for citizens like golf courses, river beaches, thermal centre or botanical garden, among many other attractions. This area includes the Water Tower, a drop shaped building which is the symbol of modernity after its universal exhibition known as “Water Exposition”. The Imperial Channel of Aragon or Las Riberas del Ebro are other new spaces that emerged in order to give importance to the role of water in Zaragoza.

    In order to get our strength back…there is nothing better than tasting the rich local gastronomy with dishes like chicken “chilindron”(stew), lamb or cod “al ajoarriero”. We recommend you taste them like tapas in “El Tubo”, which is the tapas area for excellence in Zaragoza, a mixture of streets located just a few meters away from El Pillar where you will find many bars, restaurants and taverns especially lively at night.


    As a Congress City, Zaragozaenlace has major facilities like its two Congress Palaces: Auditorium and Congress Palace of Zaragoza, inaugurated for Expo 2008. Moreover, the city provides modern cultural centres prepared to host any type of professional meetings and incentives like Caixa Forum or Aragon Institute of Contemporary Art and Culture IAACC. The city has very good connections and is located between Madrid and Barcelona, including AVE high-speed trainenlace and he city has become highly trendy in MICE tourism in Spainenlace due to its hotel capacity.
