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

If you have been lucky enough to visit the Real Alcazar in Seville or the Alhambra in Granada I’m afraid you will be disappointed. Very small and limited access. We purchased the audio tour but would not recommend it.

Was disappointed that it was a Sunday afternoon when I tried to visit and it was already closed for the day. Still amazing to see the architecture.

This large historical structure has some very beautiful Islamic Architecture. There are many rooms to view on several levels. Explainations are rarely in English but there are audio guides and hand held sheets that are in English. I know I am in Spain but English...More

Opening times are restrictive so plan ahead when visiting aljaferia. Walking around the compound to see it from the outsude and the moats is worth it (and free). Entrance is E5 for adults. Guided tours exist but mostly in Spanish and seem booked full quickly....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
