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.

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

It's a nice building to visit, but the overall quality of the places to visit is not giving a waw vector. Low quality of restoration, the outside looks a lot better than the inside. It also houses the parliament, the security Staff is not giving...More

The former Palace of Katherine of Aragon is relatively unknown in the UK as is Zaragoza generally. For me this was the highlight of my visit. Comparisons with the Alhambra are inevitable and for me the Palacio de la Alijaferia is on a par. The...More
