Zamora is a good place to visit for a weekend, but remember that if you want to buy some gifts you only can do it on Saturday morning! Zamora has ancient wall remains, a lot of romanic churches, streets with modernist buildings and shops with beautiful display windows, in addition you can eat delicious and cheap "tapas" everywhere. Enjoy Zamora!

Nice small city that you must see in a day or in your way back home. Should visit the Parador and have a drink in there. Local great food.

Situated in the heart of the old town and well worth a visit. The dome is incredible and the entry cost is not expensive - I think it was no more than 5 euros

It is said that Zamora contains the largest number of romanesque style churches in all of Europe. It is built along the banks of the river Duero (with three ancient water mills just alongside the former Roman bridge). It is a walled city and one can get some very impressive views of the significance of these walls from the riverside.... More

Zamora is the city with the most romanesque style churches in all of europe, so there is lots to see here. Built along the river duero it has a beautiful old bridge which crosses it. Many defensive buildings are here as there were many fights between the original inhabitants and the arabs to control the city. Henry 4th honoured the... More

I doubt that we would have considered visiting Zamora, if a group of friends had not invited us. What a lovely surprise we had. A mediaeval walled city on the river Duero, Zamora is a taste of the real Spain. Apart from the castle and cathedral, there are lovely churches and museums to visit. The new town is lively and...
