The Cathedral-Basilica de Nuestra Señora del Pilar in Zaragoza, reminiscent of the great mosques of Istanbul, was built on the exact spot where, according to some writings, the Virgin Mary appeared to Santiago in 40 A.D. This architectural work, legendary and impressive, is considered to possess such sanctity and protection from the heavens that during the Spanish Civil War three bombs were dropped on it and none of them exploded.
Zaragoza is a friendly city, with a sustainable tourism very little mass that attends in a magnificent way to those who visit it, given the multiple places to discover that it possesses. A geographical point where cultures have always mixed, placing it at the forefront of its time. Proof of this are its Mudejar buildings, unique in the peninsula, or the careful traditions of all creeds, always looking to the future.
