Overview

Calatayud lies 83km from Zaragoza. Follow the N-II road towards Madrid to get there. The name Calat-Ayub means "the castle of Ayub". The ruins of this Moorish castle are visible on the hill which towers over the city. The church of Santa María la Mayor there has a plateresque door and an octogonal Mudéjar tower (it was previously a mosque). A few kilometres away are the ruins of a Roman city: Bilbilis, famous because the great poet Martial was born there. Martial lived in the first century in Flavian's court. After Domitian died Martial returned to Bilbilis and married a rich old heiress.
