Everyone always wants to return to Zaragoza. The hospitality of its people is joined by many other treasures: its extensive historical-artistic heritage, its offer of leisure and culture, the liveliness of its streets, its tapas routes, its avant-garde restaurants and, of course, the Fiestas del Pilar.
Besides the abandon of the night-time, the fiestas of October are a calling card of cultural Aragon, whose capital is its entrance gate. Each square, each corner display the atmosphere of the many festivals which extend throughout the year in the territory. From the Slap, dedicated to black music, to Latin Zaragoza, which brings the most outstanding performers from the other side of the Atlantic; Lagatavajunto, with ‘reggae’ rhythms or the ‘delicatessen’ fanfare musicals, etc.
Aragón and Zaragoza are a festival of festivals.
