If you are planning a weekend getaway this fall, make sure this city is on the list of places you cannot miss. Not only do you eat well and cheaply in Zaragoza. It also has a lot of charm, a town abandoned by the Civil War and beautiful corners to get lost, like these four.
Of course, any visit to Zaragoza includes entering the Aljafería Palace, the Basilica del Pilar, the Cathedral of the Savior of Zaragoza and the Plaza del Pilar. But beyond the classics, these four corners escape traditional tourist guides and will surprise any visitor.
Balcony of San Lazaro
Renfe train from Madrid to Zaragoza
After a beautiful day marveling at the streets and museums of Zaragoza, we highly recommend crossing to the other bank of the Ebro River and going to the balcony of San Lázaro. It is a platform from which you can see the whole city with a beautiful profile of the Basilica del Pilar. At nightfall leave the most beautiful postcard and instagrammable of all.
Zaragoza Central Market
Double room in Hotel Palafox*****
We are in front of a Parisian-inspired building made with iron and glass. But the magic is not only in its facade. Inside we can enjoy lots of food stalls with tapas, drinks, sweets and typical gastronomy of the area. It is one of the best places to eat in Zaragoza.
Courtyard of the Infanta
If you have already visited the iconic Grande José Antonio Labordeta park, we have another secret park for you. It is called Patio de la Infanta and it is a beautiful Renaissance corner hidden inside the Ibercaja headquarters in Plaza Paraíso. Two galleries with columns and tapestry decoration from Flanders and Brussels dating from the 15th to the 17th centuries.
Double room at Eurostars Zaragoza****
Renfe train from Barcelona to Zaragoza
If we go around the Salvador Cathedral we find this alley with a beautiful medieval arch. It belongs to the Casa del Deán, built in the 13th century and with an aesthetic that will make us feel like characters from Game of Thrones.
