Beautiful architecture, many tourists

Zamora is a very nice town, but due to the many tourists find it difficult to feel "right spirit" of Zamora and its natives (unlike Salamanca)

Zamora is often forgotten. People go to Salamanca or Segovia, but Zamora has a beautiful old town which is pedestrian, clean and very interesting. There are many things to see and do.

No visit to Zamora is complete without a stroll along the river Duero to the ancient Roman bridge and then onto the castle and cathedral. Zamora is a delightful place and worth making it a stopover if travelling through Spain.

The city of Zamora is famous for his “Casco Velho” or Historic Centre. A visit to this nice location can be done in a day, this because it is not so big and you do not need transport, you can see every historic building of this location by walking, and this not in a hurry, following the indications of the...

Having been to almost 40 cities, town and villages in a month long trip through Spain, Zamora’s Casco Historico or Old Town rates as just above average. We came across a number of more beautiful and delightful historic town centres. However, I will say that there was a very nice atmosphere to this Casco Historico. The Plaza Mayor is nothing... More

I go there every summer and I never get tired. You will fall in love with the views and tranquility of this city. Go for tapas, walk Along the river and go for a drink and a walk in Valorio

I'm on a road trip at the moment in this part of Spain and Zamora was recommended by several people to me. I very worthwhile stop, I only had one night and that during Samana Santa(Holy Week), the place was packed. Particularly for the processions, which were pulling in thousands of spectators, I was genuinely surprised. Lots to see, especially... More

Expected Romanesque but largely Gothic. Very well done audio guide included with admission. Tapestries are not to be missed. Only disappointment was the cloisters which are "relatively recent" and unexpected. Original gothic period paintings/murals alone would be worth the visit.
