The capital of Zamora's province is a true joy for all sensible visitors who keep their eyes open while walking through the streets of its old town. I read that a clueless tourist compared Zamora with a cemetery. Looks like he did not notice neither its amazing and marvelous modernist buildings nor the breathtaking views from the city to River...

We enjoyed Zamora as we never took our car out of the car park for three days. We could walk everywhere and did not need any public transportation. Since we visited on a weekend there were many weddings which we enjoyed from the sidelines.

A city full of beautiful medieval churches, totally off the beaten path for most foreign tourists. Small city with some nice hotels (a parador, and a nice Melia), good food. Officially gay friendly!

Romanesque churches, turn of the 20th cent. buildings and a region famous for its wines cannot make up for the feeling one has walking around Zamora that it's more of an old folks' place than a vibrating town. Imho if you want to spend a day visiting Romanesque churches and enjoying good dining and wining, opt for picturesque Toro instead.

Nice town, close to Portugal and not far from larger Spanish cities. Tradition, modern living and relax all in one package.

The town has spent a lot of money restoring many of its old buildings, streets and parks. They've done a good job too, it's a great town to explore on foot at a relaxed pace. Nice shopping streets also, and an hours drive to both Leon and Salamanca.

Zamora is a lovely and very old town. There is a fabulous castle, now a ruin, but you can go into it and tour it. The old narrow streets are charming and authentic. There are a good number of Romanesque churches from the 12th century, in extremely good condition. Lots of good cafes and tapas places. Best tapas I had... More
