How many places in the world can you name with a "z" in them? Arizona, Belize or Zimbabwe? Let's make this game a bit harder. Which places have two "z"s in their name? Here’s a hint: It’s a Spanish city, home to a cathedral and located on the Ebro River. Do you give up? It's Zaragoza, of course! Set between Southern France and the Mediterranean Sea, this sunny city is known for tapas and great architecture…and so much more. Curious? We thought you might be. Book Zaragoza accommodation today and be on your way to Spain tomorrow!
Things to Do in Zaragoza
After settling at your accommodation in Zaragoza, make sure that your first stop is at the Basilica of Pilar, a Baroque cathedral with spectacular views. Legend says there’s a pillar in the church that the Virgin Mary placed there herself! Later on, why not compare Spain's famous cathedrals? Extend your annual leave by a day or two and book accommodation in Barcelona to compare Gaudi's Sagrada Familia to Pilar. Why not tour Barcelona while you’re at it? We heard the wine is incredible.
We hope you brought your walking shoes, because Zaragoza and its surrounding areas are a nature-lover's dream. The must-see Monasterio de Piedras Park should be at the top of your list. Filled with lush waterfalls, ponds and walking paths, you won't regret the several hours you'll spend here burning off the calories collected from your tapas crawl.
Speaking of tapas…that’s kind of a big deal here. If you want to turn your holiday into an epic food adventure, look for Zaragoza hotels near Calle Mayor. Now take off your smarty pants and put on your eating pants. You'll need them. Chow down on tapas, grab bar snacks to pair with your favourite wine or beer, and try Middle Eastern, Argentinean and other cuisines.
