We spent a pleasant hour and a half walking "between" bridges on both bans of El Ebro. Robbed of almost all of its water for all the normal uses, there is still JUST enough flow to give a hint of what a mighty river this must once have been. A bit of green and softness in Zaragoza which otherwise strikes... More

This rivers' importance is solely coming from the Basilica nearby. It is not a clean river and there is nothing spectacular about it. There are some number of bridges on it and you can take good views of the basilica on these bridges. Take a glance while passing over it.

There are some nice areas to walk alongside the river and it is not a clear watered River as previous reviews have suggested. It didn't smell when we had a walk by it in the hot... More

like most of rivers in the city El Ebro isn't the cleanest river and sometimes smelly. But walk or even jogging on promenade next to it on the evening can be romantic. and view on Basilica from other side its worthy to walk a bit after having tapas

Not much on its own, but the river hosts many nice bridges and allows for view of the Basilica and the rest of the City.

I visited here on a windy morning on a walking tour around Zaragoza. The El Elbro is one of Spain's most important rivers and I believe is the second biggest river that stretches nearly 1,000km! Walking to the Ebro, you can take some amazing scenic photos and landscape photos - particularly of the church. The most common point to reach... More

One of the reasons to visit Zaragoza. Lots of parks near the shore where to do exercise (running, walk, ..). There are also some bridges from where you have amazing views of the city landscape and the Basilica del Pilar. Be carefull on windy days because it is the most windy place on the city.

After viewing the Basilica and the Plaza del Pilar, we walked to the bridge to take a look at this incredible expanse of water, which during our visit was dark and with a strong current passing through. From the bridge, we could get an impressive view of the Basilica and the water passing under the bridge. We took a short... More

I was fortunate to have a friend from the area who filled me in on the history of the Ebro River, it's uses, the canals and bridges. Walking along the banks of the Ebro was like having a walk in the distant past.

Walked along the river Ebro between the EU monument and Plaza Pilar, then back after crossing over to the opposite bank. An expansive river, it provides great photo opportunities of the city.
