Architectural Building Historic Site
Known as a masterpiece of Gothic architecture, La Lonja was used as a center of commerce, especially for the silk trade. This historic building, built between 1482 and 1548, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Don’t miss the inner courtyard decorated with orange trees, or the twisting stone columns and painted ceilings in the main hall. There are several large halls to discover as you explore. Keep in mind that there isn’t a lot of information offered to visitors here, so hire a guide or do research before you go. A visit to La Lonja represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Zaragoza trip itinerary builder to plot your vacation.

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.
