We've spent nearly two full days in Zaragoza, a town I remember learning
about through the artist Goya.
It is full of amazing architecture, some ruins even going back to the Romans in
the 1st century!
But it is this Basilica....
with its tiled domes and turrets...
which is visited by pilgrims from all around the world!
There is a church on nearly every corner, in a vast array of styles!
But The Aljaferia Palace has been the highlight for me....
This palace has three different styles spanning centuries...
The Islamic period...
|Queen Isabel's Courtyard|
followed by the medieval christian palace
|Ceiling in the medieval palace!|
(oops! Not sure what happened to those photos! I can't have been paying attention!)
And for a change of pace.....the modern street art of Zaragoza!
Around every corner there is something else to see...
|See all the little faces carved into the wall of this building!|
I hope you have enjoyed my tour of Zaragoza!
