Was a city in Northern Spain. Called later Zaragoza or Zaragossa. I guess it is only ancient town which is named according Roman Caesar.
City was important because it was guarding trade route to Spain. Here model of the city.
Lot of Roman ruins can be found here.
Thee man himself on the streets of Zaragoza – Gaius Octavianus. Later emperor Augustus.
River Ebro is looking very magnificent especially at night. No wonder this was good place for tribesmen to settle here on ancient times.
Nice looking church – one of the many- in the old town square.
Nearly everything old is near plaza del Pillar. Basílica de Nuestra Señora del Pilar is a really big and nice church on the side of plaza.
It’s winter – so local people have built on Christmas or New Year’s Eve an ice slide…
In the night plaza and basilica del Pillar look’s very nice.
Nice looking obelisk in the old town near Ebro-river.
There are still some Roman time buildings left. Here is the local bathhouse.
Still some original parts left.
And of course one needed toilet – also in bathhouse.
Maybe ancient Romans used wooden shoes. Floor was very hot in calidarium.
Computer model what it may have been looking here.
Model of Roman theater in Caesaraugusta.
Model from different angle.
Ruins of ancient theatre is now an interesting museum.
Masks of Roman play’s found on excavation site.
More artifacts found on place.
From third floor one get’s better view on site.
Old house of merchants in downtown – Sala De Exposiciones La Lonja. Very nice columns and ceiling.
Museo del Foro de Caesaraugusta (right) is located another end of plaza del Pillar – nearly everything old in this city is located on same plaza.
Model of former main square of Caesaraugusta.
Ruins on bottom layer of museum.
Roman time tunnels under the museum.
Roman life in triclinium – dining room.
Very nice copy of roman oil lamp.
Here some picture of Cathedral of the Savior – La SEO.
This church is placed on location of old mosque – from time when city was called Zaragusta.
More decoration of times of Al Andalusia.
Here some churches more where seems to be architecture of older muslim times. Santa María Magdalena built by moors or Mudejars who stayed in Spain after conquista.
It’s bell tower looks really nice and unique.
Iglesia Parroquial de San Gil Abad was also a mosque but was changed by Mudejars after reconquista. Style can not be misinterpreted.
Streets in Zaragoza look very nice and seem to be in good condition.
Well … in the end nice fountain near hotel and plaza del Pillar.
