Zaragoza City In Spain

Author : Brian Petit

The city of Zaragoza also known as Saragossa has built its identity around vacationers from all over the world as a result of the enviable diversity in artistic, cultural and historic heritage which has accumulated through the twenty centuries that the city has been in existence. The legacy in Zaragoza has been mainly derived from ancient Christian, Iberian, Jewish and Moorish populations that have called Zaragoza home once over the last 2000 years.

In present day the city of Saragossa is a metropolis full of life and is home to over half a million residents. The city has over the years expanded to occupy the entire banks of the Ebro River. Due to unyielding business prospects and perfect strategic geographical positioning, the city has grown into a perfect location for holding expositions and conferences with respect to the serene environment that prevails in this city.

The city of Zaragoza has a number of attractions worth visiting for any vacationer. Among them is La Seo. This largely features as a significant monumental structure in Saragossa. Utmost dedication by local authorities to undertake frequent renovations have helped a great deal to maintain the charm that the city seemingly holds over sightseers who come knocking at its doors.

The Cathedral in Zaragoza was constructed during the fourteenth century and boasts a number of magnificent Baroque and Mudejar additions as part of Gothic Aragonese architecture applied in putting up the structure. A museum in the city holds scores of highly valued artefacts collected from France and the Flanders. The Nuestra Senora del Pilar Basilica shrine was put up in the year 1677.

The economic significance of this town is one that cannot go unmentioned. The town's trading activities took place in the town which was previously known as Lonja. The trading centre was put up adjacent to the cathedral which dates back to the sixteenth century. The Cathedral itself is an architectural masterpiece which is endowed with a spectacular three sided interior whose walkways stand on huge ratified pillars.

There are a number of museums throughout the city of Zaragoza you should pay a visit to during your visit to the Zaragoza province of Spain. Within the los Sitios Plaza you will find the Museum of Zaragoza. The facility hosts an archaeological partition dedicated to Goya, a renowned Spanish painter who was dedicated to chronicling and commentating on various events with imaginative art throughout his lifetime.

The Padro palace plays host to the Camon Aznar Museum. Here you will also find magnificent artwork in paintings by a number of famous artists. The Counts of Argillo palace on the other hand houses the museum of Pablo Gargallo which has numerous modern figurines on display.
