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
