Zipping around Zaragoza – a weekend in the capital of Aragón

Join me for a whirlwind wander around Zaragoza, the beautiful capital of the Spanish autonomous region of Aragón. I zipped up to Zaragoza on the AVE from Madrid to meet an old friend who lives in Barcelona. It´s the perfect half-way meeting place.

In this episode I explore the city and visit some of Zaragoza´s most famous sights, including the magnificent Basílica de Nuestra Señora del Pilar, the Catedral del Salvador de Zaragoza, the elegant Moorish palace, Palacio de la Aljafería as well as tapas crawl around the city´s El Tubo quarter, famed for its tapas, pinchos and nightlife.

Places I visited in the episode:
