Not the most beautiful, but worth seeing whilst in Zaragoza. More so the bridge near the basilica where you get a fantastic view. From the bridge we saw ducks & duckings in the river, along with lots of enormous fish swimming about.

It is only a river, running through a dry country. Walk across one of the bridges. The walkway along the river itself is a little nasty. Go back to the Plaza and have a beer.

Well the Ebro is only famous, because he is next to the cathedral. But the river itself is not that impressive, because he is also quite dirty. But when are on one of the bridges, which cross the river, you can take some awesome pictures...More

Nothing particularly special, doesn't even dominate the city although there are many interesting bridges over El Ebro and a walk along the banks is as enjoyable as any other river that flows through a city.

We have been criss-crossing the Ebro for three days down from the hills. Here it is at its majestic best and looks huge compared to the big stream up country.

We spent a pleasant hour and a half walking "between" bridges on both bans of El Ebro. Robbed of almost all of its water for all the normal uses, there is still JUST enough flow to give a hint of what a mighty river this...More

This rivers' importance is solely coming from the Basilica nearby. It is not a clean river and there is nothing spectacular about it. There are some number of bridges on it and you can take good views of the basilica on these bridges. Take a...More
