(700+ reviews on the web)
Church
Admire 360-degree views of Zaragoza and the Ebro River from Ascensor del Pilar. An elevator takes you to the base of the spire. Then you'll climb a short staircase to the top, where on a clear day, you can see all the way to the distant peaks of the Pyrenees. Look out over the bright green, yellow, and blue chevron tiles of the church roof and its many spires pointing towards the heavens. Below, watch the deep green Ebro flow past.

  • Best place to oversee the city
  • The climb up the Tower of the Cathedral is well worth the expense of pennies. The view is gorgeous and I recommend you go there around sunset when the grazing light illuminates the roofs of Zaragoza in a particular way.

  • Dirty glass and low visibility. You agredeceria control in access, in the circle above us came together almost 15 people and there were discussions among tourists. It is worth climbing, but you depend on visitors who around you to be educated.
