We had a very enthusiastic and knowledgeable tour guide who explained things very well (in Spanish but I believe there may be English tours... More

Impressive from outside yes, but even more so from inside. Wander the halls and study the complexities of its design (will keep you busy for quite a while) or just sit on a bench and enjoy the open spaces. Also stroll around in the gardens outside, as there are some nice places to rest or soak up some sun.

This was my favorite site in the city. It has been preserved with great care and it is still ongoing. The architectural details are really quite beautiful and they have done an excellent job with the restoration. It is a little bit of a walk from the center of town, but I would recommend a visit if you are in... More

The Palace was the seat of Muslim rule in teh Aragon area for centuroes, and even after the Reconquista, the Christian rulers of Aragon kept strng ties with teh Muslim and Jewish populations, maing this a very strong symbol of early interfaith cooperation and harmony (ended with the start of the Inquisition). Great tour, even if we could not get... More

The building has been restored to reflect the original Islamic palace of the 11th century. The beautiful ceilings and wonderfully carved arches, doorways and passageways are a must see. Plan to spend at least an hour and a half just exploring.

A magnificent testament to the Moors understanding of sustainable and beautiful building. The weather was very hot, but in the Palacio de la Aljaferia it was much cooler. The carvings of the arches and careful consideration of layout and the beautiful restoration, with sympathetic and fascinating way the old and restored are intertwined. The historical display is well presented. There... More

A visit to this beautiful place is a must. Just a 15 minute walk from the Plaza Pilar. Very beautiful reminder of Spain's Moorish influences

Best tourist site in Zaragoza. Really beautiful. I especially enjoyed the guide. Seems much smaller than La Alhambra but worth it.
