History is capricious, and the location of a town is often what marks the difference between success and decline. Tarazona’s strategic location meant it was a key site during the Middle Ages, but also meant that a large part of its old quarter was destroyed. In any case, the town has been able to rise from the ashes on more than one occasion, and it still conserves several treasures from various eras, and the old quarter has been declared an official Site of Cultural Interest. Book one of our many cheap trips to Tarazona and you’ll see why.
Its old town is home to the town's main attractions, such as the Cathedral of Nuestra Señora de la Huerta, from the 12th century, and the Renaissance-style Palacio Episcopal.
