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.

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.

We did not spend much time here but it does seem to serve as a central meeting place with shopping and dinning options.

This is the traditional center of the city. It is the beginning of "Paseo Independencia" and ends in "Plaza Aragon". This is a nice place with beautiful building around and a lot of commerce nearby (same applies for bars and restaurants).
