Pasaje del Ciclón 

A piece of Paris in Zaragoza!

Pasaje Ciclón

It is a space that allowed Zaragoza people to fly with their imagination and move, just for a moment, to the French capital. It was built 1882 -1883, the building had the architectural fashions that reigned in 19th century in France, even with domes in its chamfers. It was one of the first commercial galleries in Zaragoza and soon it became a reference point for the Aragonese capital.

At the beginning of the 21st century, the passage of commerce fell into a state of neglect causing that its citizens forgot it. Fortunately, coinciding with the celebration of the Expo in 2008, the passage began to rise and thanks to the private initiative it recovered, becoming a unique and privileged space that, moreover, is located in the heart of our city.

Today, we can enjoy this magical spot hidden in the heart of our city.

 Arco Deán

In 1293, Pascasio de Gormaz, prior or dean of the Cabildo of the Cathedral, ordered the construction of the Arch of the Dean to connect the palace with the temple. The architectural ensemble is distinguished for its vantage point with Mudejar Gothic tracery windows and, also, for being the only arch, of the many that the city had, which has been preserved.
