A plaza that connects
Sep 2019 • Family
A plaza that come alive at night! Vibrant with lots of activities and intricate architectural details. One of my favourite in Spain. The Plaza is surrounded by the town hall, Basillica and the Hispanic Fountain

Huge!

It is really big for the square in any town! Probably, over 1km one way? Nice and big space where you can enjoy beautiful views of historic architecture.

Large Plaza in Front of Namesake Basilica
Mar 2020 • Solo
This is a large plaza set in front of Basilica de Nuestra Senora del Pilar. The plaza extends from the attractive Fuente de la Hispanidad to La Seo del Salvador. There are numerous cafes and restaurants that line the plaza along with several hotels. A tourist information office is situated within the plaza. At night it is a pleasant gathering place for locals.

Has an Italian almost Piazza type feel
Oct 2019
Lovely place to sit in the sun and enjoy the views of the Pilar and people watch, very chilled out area with bars and cafes to sit back, relax and enjoy the atmosphere and obviously the building.

In Xmas, don’t miss it
Jan 2020 • Family
This place is always worth to visit, the basilica itself, the Square , near the river ...perfect location. But during Xmas all gets brighter, nicer and you should not miss it. A lot of things to do, including a carousel, slide, ice skating, food. All free to visit, but to pay a ticket if you want to jump in in the attractions.

You can find this square easily. It is surround by stunning architecture and has the Tourist Information in hand to help you come up with an itinerary.

At the moment they are currently setting up for the Christmas markets. I’m sure they will look great when they are finished.

Entertaining
May 2019 • Couples
At the time we visited Zaragoza there was an arts festival on which included a high wire trapeze act in the plaza. What a great spectacle it was. There was also a protest taking place at the same time. There are plenty of places to eat here and we tried the buffet on the corner of the street between the two basilicas. Great food that gives you a wide selection of Spanish food. One of the best buffers you would experience.

Splashed my feet in the fountains here too!

A wonderful lazy but hot afternoon spent here. We were delighted by our short but sweet visit to Zaragoza. I got a very good tour since my husband worked here many years before. I would definitely recommend Zaragoza as a place and destination to visit in Spain. Very clean city.

Avery impressive area in both daytime & nightime
Sep 2019
Lots to see, with beautiful buildings, statues & structures. Impressive in the day but I would also recommend a return visit in the evening when it is at it's most atmospheric .
There were some farmers market stalls at the 'fountain' end on the Friday morning that we visited. There are also some very big fine looking restaurants in this square too.
