π 2018-10-12 01:01 in Spain2018, Trips

Zaragoza was the farthest city we saw from Madrid as a day trip. 2H fast (expensive) train:

Basílica de Nuestra Señora del Pilar was beautiful, but it was a total mess with all the crowds:





it's big, but it was packed

We took the elevator to the top, decent views:












Lots of Roman ruins and museums:

they had a nice amphitheatre

Sadly, some things were closed due to the massive festival, which was clusterf a times, not counting all the things that were closed from 14:00 to 16:00 for siesta:



we were forced to stop for a 15:00 lunch

Thankfully a few things were still open:












One of the open things was the very cool Origami Museum (click for its own page):


Eventually we went to the other part of town to visit, we went to Aljafería Palace:










And then it was finally time to take a late 300kph train back to Madrid:
