Delicious gastronomy. Savour typical regional dishes and, of course, take part in one of the city's great traditions - going out for tapas: small gastronomic creations that delight all those who try them (and help you get through till the typical Spanish dinner time at 21:00 or 22:00)

The pleasure of a stroll. Going for a stroll around Zaragoza is a traditional activity open to all. Dress comfortably and explore the streets. This city is compact, ideal to explore on foot, and its boulevards, avenues and pedestrian areas are perfect for a walk. This is also the best way to admire many monuments as well.

Routes and outings in the surrounding area. Discover the area surrounding Zaragoza, with a wealth of landscapes, villages, spa resorts, cultural routes and countryside. From Fuendetodos, the birthplace of brilliant artist Francisco de Goya, to Calatayud, where you will find the Piedra Monastery nature area. Follow the Moncayo Route, to the province's highest mountain, just a few kilometres from Tarazona, a Mudejar town packed with art.
