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.

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

Most popular Plaza in Zaragoza with the Basilica on one side and many cafes and shops on the other. Great shopping streets leading from the plaza.

This lovely palaza is the main square in Zaragoza. We visited Zaragoza on one night stop from Madrid to Barcelona on a New Years Eve and enjoyed the holiday market with a lot of food, home made stuff etc. Fantastic place especially this that time of a year!

What a fabulous plaza in the heart of Zaragoza. There is a lot of space, stunning architecture surrounding it, cafes line one side, close to the shopping streets and there was an art exhibition in the street.

Beautiful square that runs infront of the Basilica de Neustra Senora del Pilar, The Seo del Salvador, La Lonja etc. Nice to visit during the day and at night when the fountain is lit.

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.

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.

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.
