What to see Leave your watch behind and grab your camera. We recommend starting your visit at the Plaza del Pilar square, where you'll see three of the city's most outstanding monuments: the first, the Basilica of El Pilar, with frescoes painted by Goya and the carved image of the Virgin of El Pilar, patron saint of the city; the second, the Palace of La Lonja, the venue for numerous exhibitions; and the third, the Cathedral of San Salvador (La Seo) where you can see an important collection of tapestries. Outside the historic quarter you'll find the Aljafería Palace, an Arab castle-palace which still contains vestiges of the original defensive wall. Festivities In addition to its Easter Week commemorations, other times of year well worth planning a visit are during the festivities of El Pilar in October. The streets come alive with concerts, mock bullfights, sports, religious processions and much more. Nature and active tourism There are two major recreational areas. One is the Metropolitan Water Park on the banks of the Ebro river which offers a wide variety of activities. The other is the Primo de Rivera park, with its paths, avenues, fountains and gardens. You'll find the Formigal and Panticosa ski resorts just over an hour and half away by car.
