Roman walls

It was a pleasant surplice to visit the Roman walls in Zaragosa and learn how big influence the Romans must have had on this part of the world.

The place itself is not impressive, but the fact that it´s there for 2000 years is enough to find it worth to visit

The Roman Walls (situated at one end of the Plaza Pilar) is a part of the Roman ruins present in the city. Although not the most impressive ruins within Zaragoza, it is good to see that it isn't replaced by something else.

A physical remnant of the wall erected by Augustus Caesar two thousand years ago, with an intact gate standing in a traffic circle further down the street. This type of ruin certainly provides some perspective to visitors who may not grasp the long history of this city.

So little of it remains it could have easily been destroyed to make way for something else, so it is a nice thing to see that the town folk choose to keep it. While it has significanly crumbled it is a good insight into how the Romans built their walls as you can see the layering and how the bricks... More

Roman remains are visible in many places around the old city of Zaragoza, giving a real sense of life continuing here for centuries.

Big surprise as we did not realise they were in the city centre. Wonderful lasting tribute to arguably the greatest culture ever!

In Roman times, 2AD-3AD, the city of Zaragoza was known as Caesaraugustus, it was surrounded by an alabaster and limestone wall. The perimeter measured three kilometres with 120 towers and four gates leading into the city. Very little of the wall remains but there are ruins down between Central Market and Zuda Tower, near Plaza del Pilar. Definitely recommend viewing.

You'll find that piece of history of former Caesaraugusta - Latin name of the ancient town - right in the center, around Torre de la Zuda. Not much information available though.
