Zaragoza : Palacio de la Aljafería guided visit in Spanish

“Oh alcázar of joy! O hall of gold! With you I fulfilled my desires. If in my kingdom I only had that, I wouldn't miss anything else." This is how Abu Jaáfar al-Muqtádir, king of the Saraqusta taifa, described his recently built recreational residence, the Aljafería Palace. Get ready to discover his legacy! Despite the fact that the first construction dates back to the 11th century, it has changed owners and has had various uses over the centuries. Did you know that it was the residence of the Catholic Monarchs? And that it came to function as a court, prison of the Holy Office and even as a military barracks? Currently, this magnificent building serves as the headquarters of the Cortes de Aragón, our autonomous parliament. And we will also visit it! Little by little, we will explore the different rooms of this indispensable piece of Hispano-Muslim art, which is part of the World Heritage List. There we will appreciate its architectural style, which blends Arab and Christian influences. You are going to fall in love! The majesty of its halls, its patios full of history and the careful Mudejar ornamentation that adorns every corner, as well as the long and complex history of both the Aljafería Palace and Aragon as a whole. We will discover everything little by little and with the help of recreations, AI, sounds and smells so that you can say goodbye to the palace with a clear image of what life has been like here for more than 1,200 years.

We had a great tour of Zaragoza with Jose! We booked on short notice and are so glad he was available. Jose had a tremendous knowledge of the history and geology of the region, and shared so much interesting information in a couple of hours to make the most of our short time in Zaragoza.

My two hour walk with Jose was immensely likeable - he had so much of information about the history, geography and culture of Zaragoza and broadly about Spain. We hit a good rapport in no time and the conversation was friendly. Jose made a big difference!!

Jose was very knowledgeable and passionate about his city and was generous with his sharing and time. We thoroughly enjoyed understanding the deeper history behind the key monuments

Amazing experience with José. A well of science. Exciting. Which gives us a real look at this city. We could have spent a whole day with him. We recommend it 200%.

Great way go explore Zaragoza, with the potential to stop at any of the locations to go in and see more
