Fiestas del Pilar!

Therefore we most wholeheartedly recommend you to stay over the weekend, or even longer. Take a look at the program – Zentyal Team will guide you to the best spots to enjoy this single, largest festivity of the year!

Rent a bike

It is every time more and more comfortable to move around in Zaragoza with a bike. If you are used to bike in your city, we recommend you to rent a Bizi – Three-day pass costs only about 5€ and gives you plenty of freedom to move around. Just remember to drive safe!

Wi-Fi

There will be a wireless Internet connection in the Summit venue. Moreover, a large number of bars, cafeterias and hotels offer free Wi-Fi for their customers, so getting connected anywhere in the city shouldn’t be a major problem.

Public transport

The tram construction work is now finished (hip hip hooray!) so now you can easily get around by tram and bus! Moreover, public transport in Zaragoza is rather inexpensive and well organized. Check out the routes and timetables at the TUZSA website for buses and Tranvía Zaragoza webiste for tram.

Going out

The three most popular nightlife areas in the city center are Casco Viejo (both sides of the street Alfonso I), La Zona (streets Francisco Vitoria, Leon XIII, General Sueiro and surroundings) and San Miguel (street San Miguel and surroundings).

What to drink & eat

The local beer is Ambar

The most appreciated local wines come from vineyards located in Somontano, Campo de Borja, Calatayud and Cariñena. For non-alcoholic drink, we recommend you to try grape juice (mosto).

Tapas

Our favorite appetizer bars in Zaragoza offer local air-dried ham (Jamón de Teruel), different types of cheese, Spanish omelet (tortilla de patata), croquette (croquetas), deep fried squid rings (calamares fritos) and a large variety of canapés (montaditos). The most popular appetizer bars are located in El Tubo area, comprised of the following streets: 4 de Agosto, Mártires, Libertad, Ossau, Cinegio, Estébanes, Blasón Aragonés, Pino and Plaza Sas.

Traditional Dishes

Few of the traditional dishes would include young lamb’s meat (ternasco), lentil soup (lentejas), Spanish migas (migas) or fried eggs with potatoes (huevos rotos) – These you can get from most of the restaurants. If you’re looking for a nice, fancy place for a dinner, we would recommend Bal d’Onsera (making a reservation is probably a good idea).

Chocolat & churros

For dessert, snack or breakfast, you should definitely try chocolate with churros (chocolate con churros). One of the best places to taste this delicious goody would be the Chocolatería Valor (Address: Plaza Sas, 7).
