A big bulk of my Zaragoza pictures went to Basilica de Nuestro Senora del Pilar, others went to bits and pieces of Zaragoza. To be very honest, I didn't even know how Zaragoza city looked like. We stayed just next to the old town of Zaragoza, where all the historical sites are, our activities only concentrated in that area, none of the others.
Early in the morning, before we started any sight seeing, we went to the river, to enjoy the sunrise.
After that, we paid visit to one of the most important sights in Zaragoza, Aljaferia. It was an Islamic palace back in the medieval time, when Zaragoza was under Arab. In present day, Aljaferia is the Parliament of Aragon. Aragon is the province where Zaragoza is. The entrance was 3Euro, and the audio guide was 2Euro. If you happened to plan a trip to Aljaferia, please do not rent the audio guide, it was one of the worst 2 Euro we ever spent in the trip.
After the visit to Aljaferia, we walked into the local fresh market. Not planning to cook anything fancy, we only got our daily fiber, fruits~
After lunch, I really envy the European lifestyle. The shops were all closed, from 2pm onwards, until they decided to open again in the evening, most probably around 5pm. After 2pm, the entire town looked so empty.
One thing we noticed during our stay was, there were more elderly in Zaragoza than in Barcelona, much more. Guess it's a good place for retirement, Ying & I would like to check out the property market :P

The next morning before we left, we woke up early for the sunrise again.
Then, we headed to France.
