We will start our free tour of Zaragoza next to the sculpture of Goya, in Plaza del Pilar. With Goya welcoming us, we will jump through time to talk about the main character of our history which is the Ebro River. From La Lonja, we will go to the Museum of the Roman Forum, located in Plaza de la Seo, where we will find the Roman remains of what was the nerve center of the social, political and economic life of Caesaraugusta.
In this very location, we will find one of the two Cathedrals in Zaragoza, La Seo, also known as the Catedral de San Salvador -declared a World Heritage Site- and the Wall of the Parroquieta.
We will wander through the picturesque narrow streets of the old city and we will find incredible places such as Casa del Deán, whose arch hides a legend that will be unveiled on our tour of myths and legends…
Before we know it, we will arrive at the Roman Theater, an architectural marvel that takes us back to the Roman times.
We will continue sharing interesting stories and even local sayings until we reach El Tubo, the city’s tapas area. We have many recommendations prepared. In addition, to reach the peak of the tour, we will cross Calle Alfonso I and we will enter through the passage of the “Ciclón”, one of the 3 commercial passages that are preserved in Spain that dates back from the 19th century.
From there, we will head towards Plaza del Pilar, but this time in a different part of it. Did you know that it is one of the largest pedestrian Plazas in Europe? On our way we will discover emblematic points such as the Town Hall, the Fountain of Hispanidad and, of course, the impressive Cathedral-Basilica of Nuestra Señora del Pilar. Moreover, we will appreciate the architecture not only from the outside, but also from the inside. From there, we will learn some interesting stories about the Patron Saint of Spain.
But it doesn’t end here! Many more surprises await us on our way, for example, the Church of San Juan de los Panetes with its characteristic tower, the Roman walls, the monument to Caesar Augustus and the great Central Market.
Zaragoza is nicknamed the City of the four cultures, since throughout history the great civilisations that have occupied the country have inhabited this city. The Torreón de la Zuda is a living testimony that will tell us about the Muslim footprint in the city.
We will finish our free tour of Zaragoza in Plaza de San Felipe, a plaza that hides many secrets. In there we will give you more recommendations that will leave you wanting to discover even more this amazing city.
