We didn’t have much time as we were passing through but we’re advised to visit this site. It’s a very cheap way to spend a couple of hours with a family especially as it sits in beautiful parkland in the city centre. There are no...More

If one is unable to go to Alhambra, the palacio de la aljaferia gives an insight into the moorish history of Spain. While the aljaferia pales in comparison to the Alhambra, it nevertheless is worthy of a visit to have a more in depth understanding...More

We are fortunate to have visited many places, not just in Spain, which have been preserved and not renovated to how they used to be. It felt more like a modern replica of the original . We missed out on audio guide at the beginning...More

If there is one piece of advise I'd give anyone going to the palace is go early as it fills up very quickly. Also it's free on a Sunday so it gets very busy! My friend and I went at 10am on a Sunday and...More

I didn't check...and found, as others have before, that it was closed for the day because of a parliamentary meeting. It is still photogenic from the outside and the nearby Bull Ring is worth seeing, with some nice cafes opposite

Though much restored the Palacio is visually great with lots of original decoration, especially the Moorish parts, still visible. Also the home of the Aragon regional parliament, it is host to some beautiful late middle ages interior design—especially gorgeous ceilings on the upper floors. Very...More

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
