如果唔係揸車都唔會經過呢個town, 所以就落左車去行下, 呢個地方冇咩真係旅客, 多數都係local住附近黎行下, 加上easter冇咩店開, 都係睇下d building, 所以如果係特登黎既就無呢個需要, 因為都幾悶下 This town is slightly boring to tourist, I just came to this town because we drove pass this town and would like to take a look. Honestly speaking there's nothing special to look around at this...More

In Zamora you won't find the tourist crowds, but a lot of culture, the old city with its gems like the castle, museums, amazing food, a lot of tapas restaurants etc. Highly recommend!

It’s a pleasant town with great views from castle and cathedral. Some really interesting old churches dotted around the town I’d recommend for an afternoon when on tour or as a day trip from Salamanca.

Partly medieval city, with ruins of a castle at the far end, overlooking the river Duero. Walls surrounding the old part, and much churches and palacios to discover.

I have to say I was a little disappointed in Zamora at first - we arrived on a Monday and there was very little going on by way of the usual Spanish town nightlife, in fact many bars and cafes were closed. However over the...More

Fabulous town with the most Romanesque churches in Europe, well worth a visit. The history is fascinating & the buildings are beautiful, definitely worth stopping off at & maybe staying overnight. We are staying at the Parador which is very central

I am a fan of Byzantine, Romanesque and Gothic architecture and Zamora is truly a remarkable center viewing some of the best. I believe there are over 20 Romanesque churches alone, and many other structures that date from the same period. Just wandering the narrow...More

We always love returning to Zamora. The River, the Storks, the Roman Bridge, The Castle, Cathedral, arches, streets & plazas. It's an atmospheric city & somehow there's a sense of peace & tranquillity. We love the cold in winter & the older senoras in their...More
