5th Largest City in Spain
Zaragoza is the fifth largest city in Spain. When people think of Spain the Top 3 are usually Barcelona, Madrid, and “Running with the Bulls” in Pamplona.
I spent two months in Spain. A few day trips, a month in Madrid, and a month in Zaragoza. Zaragoza was my first stop and the place where I fell in love with the country.
How did I choose it? Very simple, while traveling I prefer to use Airbnb for an authentic experience. I searched the entire country for a house under $400 for the month. Just outside Zaragoza, in the La Cartuja Baja suburb, I found a three-bedroom apartment on a farm.
The suburb is easily connected to the city by a 15 minute bus ride.
