Visiting Zaragoza

Zaragoza, the capital city of Aragón province in Spain, stands on the banks of the Ebro River. Its streets and small squares conceal a splendid array of monumental Roman and Mudejar architecture. It is the fifth largest city in Spain but it is very manageable. It is easy to orientate yourself in the city centre if you always bear in mind the key landmarks: Plaza del Pilar (where the Basilic, the town hall and the tourist office are located), and Plaza de España (the main square where Paseo Independencia ends and where the tram may leave you if you choose this means of transport).

For useful tourist information about Zaragoza visit the Zaragoza City Council website.

Security

Zaragoza is a safe city, even at night. However, we would expect all participants to take the appropriate measures and be responsible for their own security. We also advise you carry a copy of your Identification Card or passport at all times during your stay in Zaragoza.

Foreign exchange

The currency in Spain is the European Euro (€). We strongly recommend that you exchange your money before your journey as currency exchange services may not be available at your arrival time. Local taxis, public transport, and restaurants will not accept any other currency.
