ZARAGOZA

Why Zaragoza?

Zaragoza is a super tranquil and gorgeous city, with beauty and culture around every corner. It also sets you in great stead for connections to other places in Spain too, something you must take advantage of.

Highlights

"I chose Zaragoza as I was told most people couldn’t speak English so it would be a great chance to speak a lot of Spanish and this was definitely true."

Labordeta Park

In the south of the city lies José Labordeta Park. It's an incredibly peaceful and beautiful area, great for reading and running. I would take a detour through it daily on my walk to the University.

Albarracín

It is an ancient walled town in the mountains, which admittedly is a bit of a trek to get to, but you'll never forget it. It's so small you can walk the length of it in about 15 minutes, but it is packed full of delicious bakeries and restaurants etc, anything you'd want and need for a quick break away. Another great place is Turuel whilst on the train up.

La Romareda

Next to it there is also , their football stadium. My stay wouldn't have been the same if I couldn't have gone to their matches, where the atmosphere is electric and the people are so inclusive.

Student Bars

There are also many great student bars near the university, with extremely cheap drinks, and a vast variety of delightful tapas in the centre.

Transport

  • Bike
  • Public Transport
  • Taxis

Best idea is to get a bike, it’s flat. Although be careful as they can fine you up to 200 euros for not having lights, for listening to music or for cycling on the pavement. 

Zaragoza is quite small, there is a tram but you can walk from the uni area to the centre in 25 mins. There is however a great bus system in the city which is fairly comprehensible. 

There is no Uber but taxis are quite cheap.
