From the outside the great palace is relatively attractive. Once we pass the entrance, we quickly reach the Arabic courtyard with orange trees. Very pleasant but lacking the charm of the Arab palaces of Andalucía. Everything is a bit rougher and there is not much to see. Passed the courtyard we can visit a few room with decorated roof. If...

It's definitely no Alhambra but it's alright to pass half an hour there. I found the security guards very officious and "on top of you". Made going round a little pressured.

A beautiful mix of Moorish and Christian architecture. The palace is well preserved and offers many intricate examples of Islamic architectural elements. The arched doors and decorations featuring complex geometrical patterns make for an interesting visit. Besides what you can see on the inside there is also a small interior garden you can enjoy. We visited on Sunday when entry... More

It is so surprising to find such a place in Saragossa. You could think of being in Granada, Seville or Cordoba... or in North Africa. This beautiful palace is comprised of moorish and gothic elements and really deserves a visit because of its beauty and its historical importance. Guided visits add a lot to the experience. Please check timetable for... More

We walked to El Aljaferia from central Zaragoza ( about 15 - 20 minutes) arriving even before it opened. Entrance price was 5 Euros but only 1 Euro for seniors so this was a real bargain. We had a very enthusiastic and knowledgeable tour guide who explained things very well (in Spanish but I believe there may be English tours... More

Impressive from outside yes, but even more so from inside. Wander the halls and study the complexities of its design (will keep you busy for quite a while) or just sit on a bench and enjoy the open spaces. Also stroll around in the gardens outside, as there are some nice places to rest or soak up some sun.
