Zaragoza is the capital of northeastern Spain’s Aragon region and there are plenty of things to do to occupy a few days in the city. It was founded as a Roman city over two thousand years ago by the Emperor Augustus, who gave it his own name (Caesaraugusta) and it was the Roman capital of northern Spain. Its importance in these times is evident in the remains of the walls, baths and of the immense amphitheatre, one of the largest in Roman Hispania. There are 5 museums with Roman remains and you can buy a pass that allows entry to all five of the sites.
In moorish times Zaragoza became the capital of one of the most powerful Taifas in al-Andalus. Its importance can be seen first-hand on an unmissable visit to the palace of La Aljaferia, whose spectacular courtyards and chambers make it one of the glories of al-Andalus art and one of the best examples of the mudejar style in Spain.
Christian Zaragoza boasts two beautiful cathedrals. The best known is of course the Basilica del Pilar built to house the jade pillar that Mary came down from heaven on to tell St James to continue with Gods work while he was having a moment of doubt while in the city. Besides being a symbol of Aragón, in artistic terms, it is a veritable museum full of religious work, including the fabulous frescoes Goya painted on two of its vaults.If you want to know more than the work of this Aragonese genius you have to visit.
The other cathedral is El Salvador, better known as La Seo. This features a variety of artistic styles ranging from Romanesque to neoclassical, through the Gothic-Mudejar, Renaissance and Baroque. Its most eye-catching exterior features are the Wall of La Parroquieta, a masterpiece of Zaragoza Mudejar, designated UNESCO World Heritage status, and its slender Baroque tower. Inside, highlights include the magnificent alabaster altarpiece of the main altar, a characteristic work of European Gothic, the 16th-century dome and the splendid choir.
There are several interesting museums in the city including a Goya museum (Goya from a village on the outskirts of Zaragoza) and the museum of Zaragoza. There is a fantastic ambience in the city on a summers evening with people taking an evening stroll, trying tapas and passing the time in one of the cities many plazas.
It’s a great place to spend a few days!!!
