Without this river-oasis this city would not exist. The city government has done an excellent job of creating walkways/bike paths along the river for excellent long walks removed from the sound of traffic. A walk along the Ebro really is part of a visit to Zaragoza. Don't miss it.

The Ebro is a historically significant river in Spain's history, and at Zaragoza (Ceasaraugusta) the direct influence of the Roman Empire is seen,evidenced in the existing and still well-maintained stone bridge that spans the Rio Ebro. The Ebro and the bridge are an easy walk from the old plaza area of Zaragoza. However, we walked it at night, when it... More

The River Ebro runs through the city of Zaragoza, it is the second longest river in the Iberian peninsula. Great views of the river can be seen from the Basilica tower by taking the Ascensor del Pilar, or crossing over the river by one of the many bridges offers good views of the city and the Basilica. We enjoyed our... More

Not the prettiest river I have seen, it was very brown and murky and very fast flowing. When we visited there were no boat or trips on it. However, I believe there had recently been heavy rain in the area, which may have had an impact. We did take a walk up the river and there are some stunning photo... More

This is the biggest river in Spain in terms of water volume. It has been the center of Zaragoza and having a walk next to it you can enjoy nice views and a 2000 years old bridge. You cannot miss it.

The view of the Ebro and the city in the background is quite impressive. It's a great spot to take postcard type photos of Pilar behind you. The Ebro is just one of the many beautiful sights in Zaragoza.

The oldest part of Zaragoza is located by Ebro river. You'll get a nice view from the basilica's tower. It is also a part of classic photographies representing Zaragoza - Puente de Piedra over Ebro with basilica in the background.

By Spanish standards this river is massive and we came after the floods. The roar of the river was impressive and there were even wheely bins caught in the currents from some poor town that probably got flooded.
