During 2017, we have received more than 50 professionals, most of them foreigners, who have enjoyed the possibility of discovering Zaragoza first-hand.

Thanks to their posts on the social networks, and particularly by their pictures on Instagram, they have managed to share their personal vision of our city.

Do you want to have a hint of what has caught their attention?

In Mars we received a photographer, Jia Hui, as part of a blog-trip organized by the Spanish Tourist Office in Singapore. The formidable sunsets in Zaragoza were the stars of this post.

Roman walls in ZaragozaThe 2000 years history of Zaragoza and its incredible historical and cultural heritage stand out too, like for instance the remains of the roman walls of Caesaraugusta.




As for British bloggers from Live Share Travel and Budget Traveller, by the blog-trip #SpainbyTrain organized by the Spanish Tourist Office in London, they wished to reflect the splendor of Zaragoza in times of taifas by an image of the Aljafería Palace.

The numerous museums in the city were the subject of the posts by the bloggers from Jet Lag Trips, coming from Toulouse, who visited us in September and discovered, among many others, the Aragonese Contemporary Art and Culture Institute Pablo Serrano. The Italian journalist Federica Brunini, in her visit to Zaragoza as part of a press-trip organized in collaboration with the Spanish Tourist Office in Milan, offers a formidable picture inside Pablo Gargallo Museum: one of the many Renaissance courtyards in our city.

Urban Art in ZaragozaUrban Art, with a strong presence in our city because of Festival Asalto, was a great discovery for the professionals that visited us. This international urban art festival takes place annually and has made Zaragoza the Spanish city with the largest amount of street art work. We can see some examples in the posts of the British bloggers form Borders of Adventure, Budget Traveller and Travel Time Turtle during the blog-trip #SpainbyTrain.

The modernity of the buildings in the Expo 2008 is another subject that catches the eye of the visitors to the city, as you can see in these examples!
