We've booked online ahead of time and, we were lucky as they only gave tours to those whom booked early. We had a tour guide to go through the Palace with us and it has a lot of Moorish influence for the architecture, well worth a visit.

On paper and judging the perfect preservation, the Palacio looks like a castle/fortress on par with Milan's. Sadly, it doesn't come close. The visit started off great, with entry to the courtyard full of beautiful plants and Moorish designs. In fact, the carved stone above the Mosque and archways are very impressive. The rest of the tour consists of walking... More

Moorish and Christian architecture all together in the same building. Good information on site. Do not miss this place if you have any interest in Spanish history.

Great little fortress that has been renovated and looks quite good. Now this is no Alcazar in Seville or Alhambra in Granada however it does show off some Moorish architecture and has its own style. It has nice fortified walls and turrets and a deep brick wide moat and all very well manicured. And you will no doubt be surprised... More

This isn't anything like the more famous Moorish places in Andalucía, but nevertheless worth a visit for an hour or so. It's only a 20 minute walk from the main tourist areas.

Zaragoza is a rather small, bike friendly city and this is one of several places we visited on an afternoon bike ride. According to a local, this Palacio is where King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella gave Christopher Columbus the money for his three ships. The building is beautifully maintained and a great example of Arabic and Catholic architecture in one... More

As with everywhere you have to make sure of the opening times - become Spanish in your thinking about visits. Again do not Miss this. 1 euro for seniors and the audio guide is 3 euros but well worth it.

Very disappointing. Empty rooms! A shame after walking 1.5 miles from the wonderful cathedral in the heat. Closes between 2pm and 5 pm for siesta.
