Ascensor del Pilar, Zaragoza
(4.2/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • It is one of the few Zaragoza activities we know and what really have fun seeing and recognizing many areas of Zaragoza from the top

  • Highly recommended! The site is small and enough time to do a couple of photos and enjoy the views. I recommend go at noon when they open because it is less crowded and you are more to taste, if not, it can overwhelm a little. Costs 3€ upload

  • You pay three euros, raise a leg lift, and then another section for a super spiral staircase close (only fits a person, so if you find yourself facing with someone you have to turn around) until you get to the more high in el mirador, where just sleeps 8 people, all cramped. The guy who is responsible for what (at least that was when we were) does the slightest effort to control the amount of people climbing up, and even lets you know that the site is very small. a girl could not climb the spiral staircase because gave him vertigo and once formed up a tremendous traffic jam of people, a burden, with the Sun giving you full through the windows (it seems a greenhouse that), almost gives me a drop in voltage between color, the burden of the people and while we were locked up there. If I get it to not upload. The beautiful views that Yes, but would not pay three euros for that.

  • 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.
