“Aragon's Alhambra”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

okay, that's a stretch, but this is an important moorish palace that is well worth seeing. It's expensive, but there are some days when you can visit for free.

“Fantastic and beautiful palace”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

This palace is Moorish.and as such is beautiful and has an interesting history. The atmosphere inside is tranquil, despite sharing the space with many other tourists. Great bathroom facilities. Highly recommend a guide, really helps with the details of history, architecture and such. Isabel and Ferdinand spent time here, as well as Christopher Columbus .....really a great place to visit

“Check for a guided tour on the mudejar city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Guided tours can be booked at Zuda Tower. No disappointment at all! Very professional guides for two hours. It's 6€ x pax and worth it

“Amazing Palace”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

I did not know about this Moorish Palace in Zaragoza and later converted in a Palace of Isabel and Fernando, well worth the visit and to see the amazing rooms.
