Calatayud, Zaragoza

(1.8/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • We visited the city of Calatayud, by taking a guided visit very interesting because apart from visiting the Jewish quarter and to see the landscapes of the city from different viewpoints, helped us to learn something of the culture of a people, first Roman (Bilbilis) and then Arabic. A crossroads. Worth worth wander through its streets and then taste their cuisines and wines.

  • Our multiple trips to Zaragoza, us study that sometime visitariamos Calatayud, and now was the time. In principle and on flat it seemed that was going to be a "small Toledo" by the mixture of the three religions, and can be for these expectations that bump has been egregious. "Potential" numerous points of interest you are little care (outside because we could not enter any of them) or they have built up that even plug part of the monument. It is a shame that a city as well located (between Barcelona and Madrid), and passage of the thousands of foreigners who enter through the Pyrenees, has not invested money in his image as tourism would have returned so far. But today it would be difficult to turn, as current structures are that the city is grey and that monuments do not fit on it. The best, their neighbors: noble and kind people that if you neglect lead you to the place you're looking for. Also noteworthy is its offer hospitality, that makes him appealing to stop eating (or tapas) due to its proximity to the A2.
