Zaragoza

 

Finally, as I couldn’t find the pictures that I told you about Zaragoza (unlucky 😦 ), I decided to go there by myself! Of course, it wasn’t just for the blog, but I profited the trip that me and some friends we made these last  3 days  to Zaragoza, Pamplona and San Sebastián ( North Spain , so that you can orient yourself) for “tourism” and other things as well. ; Besides, It isn’t far at all, just 2 and a half hours by bus.

I had the oportunity of getting closer to  the temple “El Pilar” and to other interesting places all over the city and take some nice pictures that I’m sharing with you today.

So now, take a look and tell me what you think 🙂 These are just pictures from Zaragoza. I will share the San Sebastian ones in an upcoming post of which I’m already making the draft.

This is a “back view” of El Pilar. It was an overcast day, covered by those cloud formations, but luckily it didn’t rain.

And here, you can see the “front view” of el Pilar. La Plaza del Pilar or “Pilar’s Square” in english,  use to be a crowded square where lots of celebrations take place ( for example, the new year’s one), even though today there weren’t many people as you can appreciate.

I took these pictures in Calle Alfonso or “Alfonso street”, very famous in Zaragoza. It is beautifully decorated and christmas themed with shining lights, but they only switch on by night. At the back, you can see El Pilar again.

This is the Cathedral de San Salvador of Zaragoza, also located in the square of El Pilar.

Both pictures were taken from “El Puente de Piedra (stone)”, one aiming the east side and the other one the west side of the bridge. In the second one, it is shown another bridge blue and white-painted, called “El Puente de Hierro”. Do you remember the name of this river? I named it in another recent post 😛

And, in this recent post where I uploaded one picture in which you could see this “Puente de Piedra”, I talked about two lions at the entrance of the bridge. So now, I will show you those lions that I told you about.

The last picture is a curious one. I was looking down the bridge, beholding the amazing river Ebro, when I realized that one of the bases of the bridge was covered by tens of pigeons! I decided to photograph them without a doubt lol!

Well, so that was everything! I hope you liked the pictures and the city 🙂

But I’m sure that you may like  the next post about San Sebastián even more, so don’t miss it :D!

Merry Christmas people.

Javier.
