  • View of Zamora Cathedral

Zamora is famous for its Romanesque monuments. However, it is well worth a visit for its other attractions. It stands on the banks of the Duero river on the route of the Vía de la Plata, it produces exquisite wine, and is home to several distinctive palaces and churches.Read more...

What to see The point of entry to this 'City of the Romanesque' is the Puente de Piedra bridge across the Duero river. Once in the historic centre, there are two monuments that are definitely worth a visit: first, its castle, with Arab origins and which still conserves its original keep; and second, its cathedral and the cathedral museum in its neo-classical cloister. The cobbled streets will lead you to more Romanesque churches and other buildings such as the Hospital of La Encarnación, Los Momos Palace, El Cordón Palace (Museum of Zamora) and the Palace of Los Condes de Alba de Aliste (today a Parador hotel, and the ideal place to spend the night). Gastronomy Rice 'à la zamorana', stuffed hake and custard with almonds are just a few of the typical dishes. Although if you want to follow the local custom, in the area around Calle Herreros you'll be served wine from the Toro Designation of Origin accompanied by fried bacon or pork. Festivities One of the best times to visit Zamora is during its Easter Week, in March or April depending on the year. Nature Zamora is conveniently located for visits to the Lago de Sanabria nature reserve, home to the largest lake in the whole of Spain.
