This was one of the best parts of my trip to Zaragoza and one that many people overlook. At the northwest corner of the Basilica of Our Lady of the Pillar, look for signs pointing to the "ascensor" (elevator, in Spanish) and you'll be greeted by a gentleman who'll take you to the top of the tower for a small fee of 3 euros. And then be prepared to be knocked away.
The tower is close to the Ebro River, which gives you the sensation of being much higher than you actually are. But, you'll have amazing views of the historic center and its iconic Mudéjar towers, the Byzantine-like colored tile work on the Basilica roof, and the mighty Ebro cutting through it all.
Continue up the stairs and you'll finally reach the very tip-top of the towers, a small glass-enclosed room where you'll feel literally at the top of the world. 100% recommended if you want the best views in Zaragoza.
The Bridge Pavilion, the work of the architecture Zaha Hadid, was designed for the international exhibition of 2008 held in Zaragoza and with the main theme “Water”.
This bridge has a zone which is reserved for holding exhibitions. It was one of the points of access to the Expo site, its zone is being reinstated as a park with children games.
