This is an 11th century Moorish castle with unique architecture later converted into a palace for the kings of Aragon. It currently serves as the home for the state parliament. Good tour guide provided by the facility with a 1-1/2 hour walk through the centuries!

We walked across town to 'experience' the streets and also get a feel for Zaragoza. I did laugh at the other TRIPADVISOR comments about the heat and the 'relief' from the sun..on previous comments. It was so windy tonight we had to wear/carry jumpers and consider a third layer. Wonderful castle and moat. I can understand why is was considered... More

A pleasant visit for the price. A €5 adult entry fee (less for students and children) is worth the trip. The building is spectacular inside and outside, though as mentioned previously there is not much to see given the history of the building which you can learn about using the audio guide. I visited in the hottest part of the... More

An impressive former palace now used as a regional government assembly. The building is worth a visit if only to escape the heat on a blistering early evening. If you want to know more about Catalan history, speak Spanish and are into Moorish architecture it's a must. If not, it's ok.

Well from outside this looks really impressive but once you enter you have to consider the history of the place. Much has been lost over the years as it has been used as a barracks, prison, left unused and ransacked so unfortunately much of the decoration is now lost and you need a good imagination to make up for it....

There's a reason this is a UNESCO site, go see it! Not only does it having amazing history and aesthetic value, it's also the current seat of the government. Tons of guides available, and even in peak tourist season it wasn't crowded.
