Welcome to Zaragoza

Get the guide in your language


Despite its beautiful location in a picturesque valley by the river Ebro, and an incredibly rich historical heritage, Zaragoza is refreshingly untouched by mass-tourism. Most travellers know it only as a train stop on the way from Barcelona to Madrid. Zaragoza benefits, however, from its location right in the middle of everything. It is a dynamic and modern town with a unique food and bar culture. The city is a real architectural treasure and a growing young population guarantees a busy night life.
