Open city, multicultural, welcoming and mysterious
I knew that together with Teruel and Calatayud, Tarazona is one of the best Mudejar examples in Aragon. But, in an afternoon I discovered it is not only a city with a surprising and varied architecture, but also a place with soul, one of those that surround you and make you want to know more.
Set in the extreme west of Aragon, on an ancient strategic cross road to Navarra, Castilla y León and La Rioja, Tarazona has been since its remote celtic-iberian origins an open city, multicultural, where Jews, Moors and Christians lived together peacefully. This remarkable diversity, impressed like a seal on its character, makes it irresistibly welcoming and mysterious at the same time.
