In the past, with its location between Barcelona and Madrid, Zaragoza has often been the overnight stop rather than the destination city. But, all that is changing with Zaragoza now becoming a world class destination in its own right, culminating with their hosting of the (World Fair) Expo of 2008.

Photo Above - Arco del Dean dates from the 1200's AD what we see today reflects a number of renovations made in the 1300's AD.

Zaragoza is a modern city with an ancient past. Roman remains can be found with in the city along with Mudejar architecture reflecting its history under the Muslim kingdom. Many of the sights of Zaragoza can be found around the expansive Plaza del Pilar, said to be big enough to land a plane. Some sights you will find in the plaza is the large Basilica de Nuestra Senora del Pilar, the cathedral of La Seo and the Mudejar bell tower of Iglesia de la Magdalena.

Today (2006) the city is in a major transformation as it builds the infrastructure for Expo 2008 and prepares to host the more than 70 countries expected to participate. Expo is set to open on Saturday, June 14th and end on Saturday, September 13th of 2008.


Photo above - the colorful tiled roofed cupolas of the Basilica de Nuestera Senora del Pilar.

I continue to work on the Zaragoza Guide, some entries are laking a lot of information but all pages have photos of the described site. Start with the Aljafería Palace and The Cathedral La Seo .

Visit Barcelona or Valencia.
