This plaza is near many landmarks and has beautiful views. The world renown convention center is across the streets. Take a moment to take great pictures.

It's a square in a city with a feature, that is a landmark. Sure you will go through it or around it at least once while in Zaragoza, difficult not to really. If you do, take time to look up at the architecture on the buildings surrounding the plaza; unles of course you are driving!

The Plaza Espana is the heart of Zaragoza. Locals gather here to meet for coffee, have a chat, enjoy people watching.

We got lost here , as the car route takes you close by and we had to loop around past all the lights. I am sure that this is a hot spot for fun when the city is in full swing, but for us, another landmark, not more.

If you walk by for another reason, observe, enjoy, and have a drink. But don't go out of your way to visit.

Plaza Espana is one of my favourite places and that is possibly because it is where I frequently meet my daughter who now lives in Zaragoza. Visit in October during the Pillar Celebrations and the lady at the front of the fountain looking up Independencia will invariably be wearing the traditional peasant scarf worn by everyone during the event.

The old centre of the city is remarcable for its Gothic architectural style, especially in 2major religious structures: La Seo and basilica El Pilar. They say some of the frescoes on the cupolas inside the basilica are the work of Goya which it worth a visit!

Catch a tram here to all points or walk down the broad street to Plaza Aragon and beyond. Really helpful Tourist Information in one corner and several reliable cafes. When we visited the square was filling up with barriers for a forthcoming festival for the festival of el Pilar.
