On paper and judging the perfect preservation, the Palacio looks like a castle/fortress on par with Milan's. Sadly, it doesn't come close. The visit started off great, with entry to the courtyard full of beautiful plants and Moorish designs. In fact, the carved stone above...More

This palace is absolutely beautiful. Make sure to go on a Sunday because it’s free that day! They offer guided tours as well. During the winter, they’re only in Spanish. During the summer, they’re offered in French and English as well.

Such cool history in Zaragoza. Worth the price if admission to walk around and see the intricate stone work. To think of how long this place has been around it’s amazing.

Enjoyed a couple of hours touring with an audioguide. Just beautiful and well worth the small admission! Friendly staff.

Fascinating history in this castle from the Moors to the Kings of Aragon and now to a Government building. Very well maintained and it is nice to see that it is still being used. Some beautiful ceiling art.

Beautiful and historical. Suggest you take the guided tour or pay for a headset. Great depth of northern Spanish history that explains where a lot of Spain's roots come from.

This building is very well laid out for visits and understanding the early history of Zaragoza. The Moorish architecture is stunning and several of the rooms and ceilings are amazing.

The fort itself is very impressive. The area around it is a park and is very well maintained. Great for an afternoon stroll.

I went by public transport, which was easy. From memory, there was plenty of street parking nearby, but it was a Sunday. It is away from the CBD, so it should be OK
