So glad this place has been kept and preserved. How beautiful. The intricate work of its architecture similar to the Alcazar in Sevilla in some way. Beautiful rooms and arches and gardens. The entry fee was only 5 euro, a great price and the visit is good if you have an hour or so to visit.

This was recommended by the helpful young woman at the thrust center but we didn't know it was so special. Unique architecture and a history that parallels that of Spain in a vivid way. Really a treasure.

Worth doing. Interesting history; really good resoration and some Moorish decor. Make sure you get the audio guide to get additional information and detail. Would also suggest visiting early on in the day - we were there for 11:00 and it was quite quiet, but by the time we were leaving the tour groups had arrived and it was quite... More

A really interesting place, well-documented for visitors, and with a huge variety of architectural styles, tracing Zaragoza's history over the centuries. A bit off the central beat but absolutely worth the effort to get to.

My friends and I had an overnight stay in Zaragoza and just managed to fit a trip in to see this wonderful building. The history was very interesting and the architecture, although extensively restored, is lovely. The admission price of 5 euros is v inexpensive and it is well worth a visit. Sadly, we didn't have time to linger but... More

Quite cheap to visit and a pretty place to wander about in. Lovely courtyard and a nice route around inside. If you like ornate architecture, then this will float your boat. We spent about 1hour walking around (some people whizzed round, others seemed rooted to one spot - depends on your building tastes).

My fiancé, niece and I visited the palace yesterday and we were disappointed of it. Almost the whole palace was restored. We could barely see the palace because most of the rooms were closed to the visitors. The only thing they kept were the ceilings. There are two little modern buildings which have nothing to do with the palace and... More

Well worth the trouble of walking a little. Buses also available. Heavily restored but tastefully done. Very very interesting.

I expected a very old and ancient monument, but as it is using as a political parliament, you can only see a few part of the old building, however the way they are conserving it is appreciated

The English language tour guide told us we would be "very tired" as we would be covering a thousand years of history in one hour. Not a bad description of what followed. The Moorish architecture is really interesting but the Catholic royal rooms are mostly unfurnished so they appear bare. Decorative ceilings were the highlight. For opera buffs like us,... More
