Overview

Just 80km from Zaragoza, Tarazona is easy to reach by car: follow the road to Pamplona and then take the N-122. When you get there, admire the splendid views of the Moncayo mountain. It's also worth visiting its beautiful Gothic-mudéjar cathedral, which dates back to the 12th century. The Bishop's Palace is Renaissance in style, as well as the town hall, which has a façade where Hercules and Cacus are represented. There is a famous octogonal bullring which dates back to 1780. The town's narrow streets evoke mysteries, crimes and passionate stories, like those written by Bécquer, a Spanish poet who lived in the Rúa Alta. It was also in this town that King Alfonso IV married Leonor of Castilla and Cisneros was made cardinal. If you're there in the summer, don't miss the Cipotegato festival (a fun tomato battle).
