Zaragoza in winter

Zaragoza is a city where it is always desirable to stroll, and with activities to do even in winter. Don't forget your hat and scarf and set off to discover the charm of this season.

1. . Christmas lighting

Christmas lighting cannot be absent at this time and discovering it while walking can become a fun and exciting activity.

Stars, trees, colored northern lights, curtains of light, street lamps and garlands illuminate the streets of the city as well as those of rural neighborhoods.

The creativity of the shops also comes to light through the decoration of their shop windows, which on more than one occasion are authentic works of art.

Strolling through the streets is undoubtedly an activity that will surprise more than one.

2. Visiting the Nativity Scene in Plaza del Pilar

Visiting the Nativity Scene in Plaza del Pilar is an essential activity at Christmas.

Walking among its life-size figures on a route dotted with sheep, shepherds and the wise men is the most curious and magical.

Although the one in the Plaza del Pilar is the largest, there are many other unique nativity scenes installed in different parts of the city.

3. Enjoy a hot coffee / chocolate.

Zaragoza has a good number of cafes that convey warmth and well-being.

Locations with charm and comfort that, due to their decoration and furniture, transport us to a calm and dreamed world in which to meet friends, with a partner or to find oneself.

Reading a book, browsing a magazine or watching the street from the armchair we occupy can be a great way to pass the time.

Another is to surrender to the offer of exquisite cakes and delicious snacks that absolutely and definitely turn these winter activities into a real pleasure and duty.

4. A cultural visit to a museum.

A great activity is to fill our eyes with works of art, beautiful, surprising or provocative wandering through historical or avant-garde buildings.

Museums of sculpture, painting, origami or fire engines for the little ones, have their doors open so that you can entertain yourself and learn by the warmth of their walls.

5. Covered passages

If the day is not inviting for a walk, you can always go to one of the many covered passages where shops and cafes are waiting to offer you their specialties.

Puerta Cinegia, Pasaje Ciclón, Pasaje de los Giles, Porches del Audiorama or the elegant porches of Paseo de la Independencia are another alternative to enjoy the city's activities in winter.

6. Musical city

Zaragoza is a musical city in which concerts, festivals, musicals occupy the cultural agenda throughout the year.

During the winter, we suggest you get to know some of the activities organized by the Auditorium.

According to Zubin Metha, the acoustics of the Zaragoza Auditorium are one of the best on the circuit. He has not been the only one to praise it for what this venue is worthy of the most demanding ears.

Every year welcomes the brightest orchestras and conductors on the classical music scene.
