  • Zamora is a small town (about 60 thousand inhabitants) on the banks of the Douro River. It is a city whose trace is typically medieval, with many squares, surrounded by buildings of great historical and architectural value. Romanesque constructions abound (centuries IX to XII), on the one hand; and those of modernist style or Art Nouveau, late 19TH century and early 20TH. The zamoranos say, with pride, that his city is more Romanesque and modernist architecture has per m2 in Spain. The urban and architectural richness of Zamora is part of a long history of many centuries. The tourist office has enough information for the visitor, is served by very friendly people, and organises guided tours of the city that are a real treat. Do not abound in references to Zamora guidebooks. But once there, we could feel the physical beauty of the city with its great historical wealth. Its location, next to the Duero, provide us with unforgettable views. Its winding streets, its churches and monasteries, its civil buildings, its abundant squares, its imposing Castle, its Cathedral, its people,... made our visit a huge unforgettable pleasure.

  • Zamora me captive from the first visit. Few cities keep still the authenticity of its historical centre. In addition to the innumerable churches, monuments and buildings that we can visit, download all the Santa Clara Street to the Cathedral and the Castle, contemplate the Douro from the wall and then wander through the streets is an unforgettable experience. The cuisine is excellent. Eat and drink in Zamora is almost or linked. There you have 4 recommendations. Casa Antonio, the most recognized green bike. Innovative, it is very good and would improve. The salt. Eat well and drink better Los Caprichos de Meneses. My favorite. The cheese, the chacina, desserts and wines from the area you can not miss
