Iglesia de Santa Maria Magdalena, Zaragoza

4.0
#23 of 34 in Historic Sites in Zaragoza
Church Tourist Spot
Built on the remains of a 12th-century Romanesque church, Iglesia de Santa Maria Magdalena today blends influences of several architectural styles. The 14th-century structure that replaced it was built in the Muéjar style, intricately decorated with fine lines and white and green tiles. Renovations in the 17th and 18th centuries blended in a Baroque style, as evidenced by the interior--including the high altar and gilt statue of the immaculate. The church features a polygonal apse and bell tower. Decorative ogival arches and cross-forming quadrangular motifs resemble the Aljafería Palace, a further nod to other architectural styles.

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.

  • One of the oldest churches in the city (14th century), its Mudéjar Tower is precious and at night there is no Miss, has lighting that makes it magical. It is similar to the towers of Teruel. Located at the end of the main street and very close to walking for people who visit the Pilar and la Seo.
