Town Twinnings

Town twinning is the clearest example of what international projection can suppose for cities from an active, supportive and forward looking perspective. It must be emphasized that the city is the organizational authority nearest to the citizen and able to influence on national and international policies, provided that its work and activities were coordinated with many other cities from its country or from other countries.

Zaragoza is twinned with the cities of Pau, France; Biarritz, France; Zaragoza, Guatemala; La Plata, Argentina; León, Nicaragua; Bethlehem, Palestine; Tijuana, Mexico; Móstoles, Spain; Ponce, Puerto Rico; Coimbra, Portugal, and has special bilateral collaboration agreements with the cities of Toulouse, France; Mostar, Bosnia-Herzegovina; Tirana, Albania; Yulin, China; and Ploiesti, Romania.
