Palacio de la Aljaferia, Zaragoza
Categories: Architectural Buildings, Historic Sites, Tourist Spots
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.

Parece mentira un castillo en medio de Zaragoza. Me llamo la atención al verlo. Y más cuando lo vi por dentro. Merece la pena que te hagan una visita guiada.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.show original
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.
