Delegated Experts Meeting

The delegated experts meeting on Wednesday will be held at the School of Engineering and Architecture from the University of Zaragoza, located in Campus Río Ebro. It is well connected with the city center by tram (“Campus Río Ebro” stop).

Additional Cultural Tour on Sunday

For those experts who will arrive on the weekend, we have planned a guided visit to Palacio de la Aljaferia on Sunday. If you are interested on joining the tour on Sunday, please contact: ana.lazaro@unizar.es or  monica@unizar.es.

This palace, now the seat of the Aragon Parliament, is a building of singular beauty. Its long existence throughout history allows us to see the delicate ornamental beauty of a Taifal 11th century palace: its extraordinary wooden ceilings, carved by the Moorish artists who worked on the medieval Christian palace; the magnificence of the era of the Catholic Kings; and the throne room, with its amazing spectacular golden and painted wooden roof. The Aljafería has lived through many avatars, changes and stages. After restoration of the monument, it has now become a lively and open building, and a cultural landmark in the city.

The visit will start at 06:30 pm, so we propose to meet at 05:45 pm in Plaza España, stairs of DIPUTACION PROVINCIAL  building, (see picture below)  and go on foot. The walk takes around 20 minutes. Those who prefer going by public transport, there is a bus, the line number 21 (every 10 minutes) in direction Oliver, which has stops at Coso 55/Teatro Principal and at Independencia 24. Avda. Madrid/Aljafería would be the stop where to get off to get the Palace and then meet the group at 06:15 pm at the entrance.
