5 Places Locals Love in Zaragoza, not the usual tourist attractions!
This is the ideal place if you want to taste the new and old flavours of Zaragoza… You can order the typical “Ternasco de Aragón” (a kind of lamb from this area) or the Spanish cuisine’s new creations.
In Zaragoza people are brave and really stubborn (it’s the “typical cliché” about people living here)… when Napoleon wanted to invade Spain, we decided to resist at any cost, even when the population was reduced to about a fifth and the rest of Spanish cities decided to give up… Have I said that we are REALLY stubborn?
Zaragoza is Celtic-iberian, Roman, Muslim, Jewish… We are a mix of all of this, a “salad of cultures” and this is a great place to explain and share this. If you are fit, take a breath, go upstairs and reach the top of this tower of Muslim origin to take a great vision of our city’s history.

It’s time to see the modern Zaragoza. “Las Armas” is the neuralgic center of young artisans and the most cutting-edge proposals of the city. Every day you can do different activities in the cultural center: second hand markets, food trucks, indie concerts or marathons of alternative cinema are a little part of their array.
Zaragoza loves to beat worldwide records… We have the biggest solar clock in the world, for example… But if you are into architecture you must see this bridge: it’s the largest suspension arch bridge made of concrete in the world…
