We spent one day and one night in Zamora, on our way home from Portugal. Zamora is nicely located, has a nice climate (not too hot) and a nice size. Some parts of the medieval town look a bit like an open air museum, which to us is not excessively attractive. I would not spend more than a day here,... More

Zamora is a relatively small town with a great number of churches with architecture of distinction. The Cathedral is particularly nice with a very spacious plaza in front of it where one can sit and take in the view as well as the pleasant weather. Beyond the Cathedral is the remains of a castle/fortress, and from there there is a... More

There's a lot of walled cities in Europe, I don't know if I would classify this one as the best I've seen but if you have the time it is certainly worth a look. If you don't have much time there is a great viewing spot on the side of the street that leads to the bridge that crosses the... More

Zamaora is a medium-size Spanish town. The old part of Zamora was once a walled town and much of the wall remains. During Samana Santa it is a destination town for many Spanish people who come to watch the processions. These processions are televised along with those in Saville. There are a number of museums and churches to see and... More

There's really nothing to dislike about this medium sized town! If your a lover of Medieval and Romanesque architecture this city is very worth your time! During the Summer it's awesome but be aware because it's hot as well, the "siesta" does applies! :) Zamora is a must...

It really seems you are in a big village.....So if you want to meet and experience the city with greater number and quality of Romanic Temples in Europe.....come to Zamora!!!

Zamora is one Spain's highlights. The beauty of the well-preserved medium sized city doesn't cease to impress. The main attractions are the romanic architecture and one of the highest concentration of romanic churches anywhere in Europe. The cathedral and preserved city walls add to the overall impression. Also Zamora is home to one of the most important holy week cultures... More

Lots of examples of Romanistic architecture throughout the town, off the beaten track. Warm friendly place, plenty of restaurants. Shops do shut at 1.30pm and re-open at 4.30pm. Take time to walk around and absorb the atmosphere

One of the best things to do in Zamora, especially if you've had enough for the moment of huge gothic cathedrals and Spanish baroque, is to wander about on foot looking at the romanesque churches, for which it's famous. San Antolin, for example, with its odd platform behind the tower (for bell-ringers ? for feeding the storks ?), San Juan... More
