Posted August 11, 2017 by zaragozaturismo in Zaragoza today

The festivity of August 15th is here and still without plans? Don´t worry! Below we give you some ideas, depending on your tastes or preferences, if you are going to stay in Zaragoza or if your plan is a break to our city 😉

If you travel with kids…

Zaragoza AquariumEurope’s largest river Aquarium – is an ideal choice if you come with your family. In addition, you can take advantage of the promotion of Tourist Bus or Megabus + Aquarium for only €13.

Zaragoza Origami Museum

Other interesting plans to enjoy with children include the Parque de Atracciones, Museum of Origami – EMOZ or the Museum of the Fire and Firefighters. And if you want to give you a dip, you can go to Costa Chica beaches where you´ll spend a fun day. In addition to bathing, you can enjoy their sports facilities, playground and restaurant.

And from the beach… to the river! Because Ebronautas offers you these days an interesting activity to enjoy in family: “River conquest of Zaragoza“. Go boating the main river of Zaragoza and enjoy a different view of the city! (See more about this route by clicking on the link).

In addition, this weekend will take place the rain of perseids – known as the “tears of San Lorenzo” – which will reach its peak of visibility on August 13 between midnight and the 01.00 a.m. If you don´t want to miss it out, sign up for this free activity taking place at Torrecilla de Valmadrid, on the outskirts of Zaragoza and enjoy an astronomical Saturday! Check out more information here.

If yours is the cultural tourism…

Zaragoza offers a large list of monuments and museums opened for holidays. El Pilar, la Seo and the Aljaferia Palace – our three most emblematic monuments-, you can visit our four Roman archaeological museums or the one dedicated to Goya; interesting exhibitions at the Lonja“A contracorriente, de Juana Biarnés”, PhotoEspaña – or at the Centro de Historias“Enseñar a mirar. 40 años de la escuela de fotografía Spectrum fotos”, “Cang Xin: dos décadas de performance en China”; and “Out of neither of Víctor Solanas-Díaz”.

Talking about exhibitions, it´s really worth visiting Caixaforum to see the ‘Los pilares de Europa. La Edad Media en el British Museum’. You´ll travel to the past!

Do you like sculpture? In that case, Pablo Gargallo Museum and the IAAC Pablo Serrano– and wonderful terrace – are an excellent choice.

You can also visit the Resurrección Monastery with guided visits on Monday 14th (at 11 a.m. and 12.30 p.m.) and Tuesday 15th (at 11 a.m). 

In addition, you can discover Zaragoza with our daily guided tours with our tourist guide trainees (in English at 10.30 a.m. and French at 11a.m.). You can also contact companies which offer guided tours in the city.

If you don´t have much time and prefer seeing Zaragoza quickly…

And comfortable! Hop on the daytime Tourist Bus or, if you prefer to discover Zaragoza at night, take the Night Bus and fall in love with our city lights.

Another way to see the city quickly if you don´t have much time is on bike. Why don´t you rent one and enjoy a walk by the banks of the Ebro or by the beautiful Jose Antonio Labordeta Park?

Moreover, Saturday 12nd Ebrobizi offers a night route by bike. See more information here.

Different districts of the city host concerts, theater, comedy… within the program “A la fresca“.

This weekend, don´t stay at home! Check Agenda Zaragoza and if you have some questions, phone us to 902 14 2008 – 976 20 12 00 or ask in our offices 😉
