Calatayud, Zaragoza

(140+ reviews on the web)
Ruin Castle
The second-largest town in Aragón, Calatayud is also known as "the very noble, loyal, always august, and most faithful City of Calatayud." A 15th-century bell tower rises from the city's main plaza as part of the collegiate church of Santa Maria. The church was built on the site of a mosque. Even though the remains of this mosque are hidden deep under the earth, you can still tour Moorish history above ground in the Moorish fortress, one of the oldest and largest on the Iberian peninsula.
