The Plaza De Espana is not only a beautiful and thriving place filled with eateries and shops. It marks the end of the paseo De la Independencia and the entrance to the old city of Zaragoza. The perfect juncture between the new and the old....More

This broad square with a fountain and monument to the martyrs of religion and homeland is the place on border of the old and new part of the city. Popular meeting place, very nice on a sunny day, when people occupy tables outside.

If you wander where “the center” of Zaragoza is - it is Plaza Espana. Go shopping on the main shopping street or take the tram on both sides of Line 1 for 0,74 euros if you use Tarneta. Bus.

Transportation hub. Nice fountain in the center. Happened upon it when there was a very vocal protest going on. Good acoustics!

A transportation hub with several monuments and fountains. The sides are formed by some architecturally interesting buildings. Zaragoza has prettier plazas. I would not consider this as a “must see” destination.

Not the prettiest of squares, but a handy spot to meet friends by the fountain. Near some mediocre restaurants on the actual square, & a busy intersection. Better restaurants are down side streets. There is also a large El Corte Ingles & clothing stores. Not...More

This square is awesome as a meeting point. Before we went to the old town we always met up at the fountain in the middle. This square is quite huge and has also some nice restaurants. Especially the burger restaurant on the right side is...More

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...More
