An insight into the life of Gabriel Zaporta. The ticket is 2€ and the visit takes around 20mins where you visit the remains of the Zapata mansion (the central part). The courtyard is a display of beautiful architecture. The ticket includes acess to the downstairs exhibition.

The Patio de la Infanta has such a rich history, originally owned by a wealthy nobleman who had the patio constructed for his wife to honour their marriage in the mid 16th century. Over time the owners of the residence changed hands and then unfortunately in 1894 a fire destroyed the building and it was left in ruins. The house was demolished and in 1904 the patio was sold to an antique dealer in Paris who had it reconstructed in his Parisian home. In 1958 it was bought back by the savings Bank of Zaragoza and since 1980 it has been housed inside the central headquarters of Ibercaja.

Opening times are limited: Mon-Fri 0900-11330 and 1800-2100 Sat, Sun and Public Holidays 1100-1400 and Sat 1800-2100. It is free to enter and absolutely worthwhile locating, it is stunning to view. Allow fifteen to twenty minutes.
Located on Calle San Ignacio de Loyola, a short walk away from Puerta del Carmen.

We went on early Saturday evening. It's important to note this closes for siesta. It's about a 15 minute walk from the old town, and best of all, free.

It's important to take note that it's in a very modern building (that's actually a bank). The entry is opposite the United colours of Benson shop. The doors into the exhibition are very tinted, which make it look closed. There were about 15 other people here. The history is more interesting than the actual artifacts. They have a pamphlet in Spanish and in English.
We spent about 20 mins there.

The is a very old fashioned patio with balcony that has been moved here from its previous location in Paris. It is truly a magnificent work of great intricacy and worth a visit. It is located in what looks like a commercial (bank) building but very beautiful in its construction.

Located in the most unusual place - building of Ibercaja bank. If you cannot find patio, just ask one of the guards, they are happy to show you the way. The work put into preservation deserves an applause as the patio is simply stunning. There are leaflets in English and the history of the patio is also very interesting. Thanks to Ibercaja bank we can now enjoy this jewel for free (but just during the bank's working hours).

This patio was part of a mansion built in 1546. The house was pulled down in 1903, but the patio was saved: it was taken down piece by piece and transferred to a nearby house owned by a French antiquarian. In the 1950s a bank, now called Ibercaja, bought the patio. The renaissance architecture is beautiful, and there is a lot of artwork: mythological scenes, grotesque little figures, and, above all, a fresco painting from the 16th century by Rafael Sanzio. There are just a few pieces left of the original, but there is a full reproduction, showing "The School of Athens", founded by Plato, who appears in the fresco, in the company of Greek heavyweights such as Socrates, Aristotle and Pythagoras. Great!

Inside a bank you a small patio area with some nice paintings that you can visit for free. What a surprise to find this inside a modern bank.

It is a walk away from the main square, situated near the el cortes shopping centre and in a bank! The opening hours are restricted, so go between 9 and 1;30 or 6 - 9, or you will have to make 2 journies like we did. You go to the main door of the bank and then follow the directions. The patio is beautiful, so ornate and the carvings are incredible - really intricate. This patio was actually moved and was placed in a french house for some time but was returned in 1958. there was also an exhibition on when we visited - with some paintings. we were allowed to take photos of the patio but not the paintings without flash. Best of all, entry is free!!
Must see if in Zaragoza.

This is Renaissance construction (almost 500 years old) that has been fitted into the headquarters of a Bank. The Construction itself is impressive and amazing to find such a thing inside such modern building. It is located in the city center so visit is very easy.
