HIGHLIGHTS

 

The Pilar Basilica

Masterpiece of Baroque art. Built in the 17th and 18th centuries, the basilica houses several pieces of great value from different periods, including the frescoes painted by Goya.

Most notable is the day when flowers are offered to honor the Virgin on October 12, during the Pilar celebrations. Thousands of people from all over the country gather to attend this festivity.

Aljafería Palace

Built in the second half of the 11th century at the behest of Al-Muqtadir, the fortified palace is one of the most relevant examples of the Spanish-Muslim architecture of the time.

The plafonds, coffered ceilings and decorative plasterwork characteristic of this unique monument, captivate visitors. Today, this historic building houses the Regional Parliament of Aragon.

Zaragoza Expo

Subsequent to the 2008 International Exhibition “Water and Sustainable Development", Zaragoza underwent a major transformation, leaving behind a valuable legacy of new and modern buildings.
