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

Not in the same ball park as Segovia or Toledo, but definitely worth a visit! Lovely, well kept town. Still very Spanish and unspoiled. We were there on one of their local community days and the people were wonderful. Most shops were closed, but there were many (free) romanesque churches to visit, the Zamora cathedral (worth the small admission), and... More

This town is crammed full of beautiful Romanesque churches. My favourite was the tiny San Claudio down by the river, which is usually only open at weekends - we got in during the week as everybody was in there preparing for their Semana Santa procession. It is Tan ideal place to visit for Semana Santa as the crowds are not... More

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...
