At the end of the square where the Basillica is located. It's more spectacular than photos suggest, as the water is genuinely cascading all the time. Nice photo opp :)

Zaragoza is a wonderful walk-about city. The large place in front of the Basilica of Our Lady of the Pillar has this amazing waterfall.

Very near Santa Maria del Pilar, this is all one very large relaxing plaza at the heart of the city, along the Ebro river. We spent about an hour and one half walking around this place, and sitting in the sun on stone benches.

Nice fountain in Zaragoza in El Pilar Plaza. Looks like a Glacier and water is melting. At night time with lights, it is even better.

When you have been to the Pilar and Plaza, head to the end of the plaza to see the amazing fountain. A wonderful blend of the new meeting the old in the city centre. Bravo to the architects.

The fountain is at one end of the Plaza and just behind it are the Roman Ruins and the Mercado. So the fountain is sort of unavoidable for most tourists anywhere near the centre of the city. Quite relaxing to hear the sound of water...More

Water is very important in Zaragoza ( and precious) but they still have wonderful fountains and running water features.

The fountain is not bad, but in my opinion does not fit among lots of historical monuments like the ones we have in the same place
