Zaragoza - the capital of Aragon province - is a hidden gem.
Completed in 1754, El Pilar Basilica is Zaragoza’s most prominent landmark.
Standing next to the river, the multi-domed Cathedral in Baroque style was the first church devoted to honoring the Virgin Mary.
Aljaferia Palace is Spain’s finest example of Moorish architecture outside Andalusia.
The palace was designed as a residence for the Moorish rulers, reflecting the splendor attained by the taifa of Zaragoza at the height of its grandeur.
Later, it underwent a refurbishment which transformed the Islamic building into the palace of Catholic monarchs.
However, many Islamic elements were left intact, including the Golden Hall.
