Currently serving as the Parliament building for the Autonomous Region of Aragon, this fortress palace was built by the Moors centuries ago. It is beautifully detailed inside and out, and is definitely worth a trip if you're in town. Although, they don't let you take many photos of the museum portion, which is unfortunate.

For me it was the highlight of our short stay in Zaragoza. Got there at the second attempt, went firstly Friday morning only to find that it was group bookings only, so came back when it opened again in the afternoon (like most attractions in Zaragoza, it closes between midday and 14.00). Although we could have gone on Sunday when... More

Although it was a little bit out of the way we walked from la Basilica del Pilar to the Aljaferia. We walked to it by the beautiful Ebro riverside. The Palace of Aljaferia was built in the Middle Ages by a moorish king and later on after the conquest it was inhabited by Christian kings such Isabella and Ferdinand who... More

I spent six weeks in Spain but this was my favourite day visiting Palacio de la Aljaferia. The beautiful Moorish architecture is stunning and it's easy to wander about the grounds and buildings to take in the atmosphere. I don't know why but there were not many tourists there and so our experience was peaceful and unhurried. Inexpensive admission price... More

Very interesting building, especially if you like the mudejar style. Lots to see and do around it. Take your time.

My wife and I first thought that this is a small place with lots of offices, restricted areas. But we were wrong. This place brought you to journey through many centuries of rich cultures and arts!

Not the biggest or most well decorated palace in the world, but still beautiful in its own right. I got an audio guide, but that is not very necessary as they have information sheets at all the important points. 5 Euros to enter.
