4.5/5 based on 2,000+ reviews on the web
Observe a blend of Islamic and Catholic culture at Palacio de la Aljaferia, a fortified medieval palace. Built during the second half of the 11th century by the Moors, the complex was expanded in the Renaissance by the Catholic king and queen. Take in the Moorish designs in the courtyard, the ornate ceiling of the Catholic Monarch’s throne room, and Mudéjar art in the onsite museum. Guided tours are available. The site is now host to the regional parliament of Aragón, which means access to certain areas of the palace is sometimes limited. Find out whether this will interfere with your visit at the tourist office.

  • Seems to lie a castle in the middle of Zaragoza. I call attention to see it. And when I saw him on the inside. It is worth to you a guided tour.

  • Amazing place to visit. Mostly self guided without a tour but well worth it. One of my favorite places in Spain
  • Interesting, although Renovations are so extensive there is little original architecture to behold. As a timeline for Spanish history it has significant importance.
  • lindo
  • If you're into history come here.
