Are you ready for San Valentin´s day? If you are going to visit Zaragoza during the week of 14th February, we propose you a romantic walk around the center of Zaragoza. Because our city is a great destination for lovers!

A good place to start this route is at Pilar Square, where you can visit our most famous monument, the Basilica del Pilar. You can hop on the elevator of the tower for a spectacular panoramic view of the whole city. You can continue towards Don Jaime street.

                              The arch of Dean. A beautiful corner!

Don´t miss La Seo Cathedral and its magnificent Mudejar wall of the Parroquieta. Passing under the arch of the Dean –located behind the cathedral- is a must! Now it´s time to have break. Shall you make a stop at El Tubo, one of the most emblematic areas of Zaragoza for eating tapas?

After the break, you can continue discovering the old area of the city, where you´ll find lovely squares, such as San Felipe -where it’s placed Pablo Gargallo Museum, Santa Isabel or San Pedro Nolasco –there it´s located one of our archeological roman museum: the magnificient Roman Theatre. A moment for coffee? Choose one of the cafes you´ll see along Alfonso street and its surroundings.

Do you want to know more beautiful places to visit in Zaragoza, apart from the old area? If you like museums, we recommend you to visit Zaragoza Museum at Plaza de los Sitios, and Pablo Serrano Museum, with its collections of modern art and its magnificent rooftop terrace.

To finish your route, behind the Basilica you´ll find the beautiful Stone bridge, across the river Ebro. Take your camera and take wonderful photos of the Basilica from the bridge at sunset.

For the next day, it´s time to go to Aljaferia Palace, a unique example of Arab architecture. Did you know the opera ‘Il Trovatore’ of Verdi is set in one of its towers? You´ll fall in love discovering this monument!

Another good option for the weekend is Jose Antonio Labordeta Park, one of the biggest ones of the city, with its fountains, a botanic garden, a great balcony, many terraces…
