We didn’t intend to stay in Zaragoza but it’s about halfway between Pamplona and Barcelona and we found hotel rooms with no trouble; so, Zaragoza it is!
Notable things in town include the ruins of a Roman theatre built between 11-32AD and used as a performance space for the next 300 years.
And the Basilica de Nuestra Senora del Pilar built around a sighting of Mary in 48AD.
They’ve remodeled the northern tower and added an elevator and several flights of stairs leading right into the tip top cupola, from which you can see 360 degrees around the city.
We ended the night with tapas (naturalmente)
And Sangria out of a tapped cask
The Basilica looked beautiful at night
