The lift trip is great. Great views across the city. But if you don't climb stairs you won't get right to the top. Lots of stairs including, at the end, a spiral staircase. If you're up for a climb though, the views are worth

I´m originally from Zaragoza and I had never been here before. I took some friends from UK and it was great! Th price is good 3euros and you can enjoy one of the best views of Zaragoza. I recommend it!

Well worth 3 Euros to climb to the top and enjoy the views over lovely Zaragoza! The stairs at the top were easy to climb but optional; the point at which the lift stopped gave an ideal viewing platform.

Great option for the whole family. Once you recover from the vertigo induced by a glass step over the elevator shaft, you're in the comfort and protection of the enclosed viewing area.

Not sure if it opens on Sunday. There should be info on that in their own site. I would schedule about 45mins to an hour to enjoy the visit. Where the elevator ends there are still a couple of floors of stairs to go up. at... More
