Overlooked by many tourists, Zaragoza Spain is an ideal city in which to experience what Northern Spanish culture is all about.
Ever since Roman times it has been an important staging post between the cities of Barcelona and Toledo, and then later Madrid when Spains capital changed.
Zaragoza, however, has long been more than just a staging post as the navigable Rio Ebro (River Ebro) aided the Aragon empire to become one of the most important, ergo richest, in pre unified Spain.
Modern day Zaragoza offers visitors a unique Aragon experience at an eminently reasonable cost, due to the fact that the large tourism companies have yet to exploit the city to its full potential. In reality there are more than a weeks worth of attractions to see and activities to enjoy in and around the city. One could quite easily spend an entire holiday in Zaragoza without needing to visit other parts of Spain!
Three timeframes have left their mark on the city of Zaragoza throughout history and the as such there are wealth of historical buildings and ruins to explore. Including some unique Roman engineering!
