  • This church called Iglesia San Gil sometimes deserves a detour. Relatively simple from the outside, it is nicely decorated inside.

  • The current church of St. Philip and James the less is begun in 1686, after knock down the former being too small before the increase in the population of the parish. On the urge of the latest fundamental role of the family of the Marquis of Villaverde, which gives the site for the expansion of the Church and helps with generous financial contributions. Outside, the cover presents a composition full of plasticity and movement, which seems to anticipate the rich interior baldachin. On Solomonic columns, the figures of the two holders are located: St. Philip and James the less. The gateway to the Church, was in its day the Basilica del Pilar and later moved to its current location. The Altar is a canopy that follows the model created by Bernini for San Pedro of the Vatican. The Solomonic columns of black marble from Calatorao framed images of St. Philip and James the less; the set is completed with the figures of five virtues: charity, hope, strength, justice and faith.

Where to stay in Zaragoza

When visiting this historical city, most visitors opt to stay in the old quarter, or Casco Viejo, for its convenient proximity to many of the city's iconic landmarks and compact network of local eateries, shops, and traditional architecture. The old quarter is located along the Ebre River meaning that you are only a scenic waterfront stroll away from the rest of the city's buzzing neighborhoods. Several newer hotels are located in the commercial zone centered around Gran Via, one of the city's main arteries, where plenty of shops and well-known restaurants line the buzzing streets. Alternatively, head to the University district for a mix of eclectic shops, quaint cafes, and a vibrant nightlife, where accommodation tends to be a bit cheaper.
