Zaragoza, Spain: Day 1 & Fun facts



1. Zaragoza is located in north-eastern Spain, between Madrid and Barcelona and with 666 000 inhabitants, it's the 5th biggest city in Spain.
2. It's the capital of Aragón and located on the banks of river Ebro, one of the biggest rivers in Spain.
3. The name Zaragoza comes from ancient Roman name Ceasaraugusta.
4. The symbol of the city is a great baroque temple called Basilica de Nuestra Señora de Pilar (Our Lady of the Pillar). The legend says that the virgin Mary appeared in the 1st century, standing on a pillar (hence the name Pilar). 
5. It's the only christian temple that has symbols of taoism. The temple was bombarded in 1936, however, the bombs didn't explode.
6. The famous Spanish painter, Francisco Goya was closely related to Zaragoza and there are many sites around the city dedicated to him, including his own legacy such as paintings in the interior of the Basilica's cupola.
7. Aljafería, another symbol of Zaragoza, is the northern Arabic palace in the world (you'll see it in my next post).
8. First Spanish movie (Salida de Misa del Pilar) took place in Zaragoza in 1896, only one year after the cinema was invented.
9. There has been several paranormal activities in the city and urban legends, such as the case of the Elf of Zaragoza, a ghost that lives in one of the towers and a haunted room 510 of hotel Corona de Aragón, whose guests mysteriously died in fire.
10. The highlight of Zaragoza's history was the 16th century, when the city was called "Spanish Florence" and the "city of hundred towers".

Esp
1. Zaragoza se encuentra en el noreste de España, entre Madrid y Barcelona. Con sus 660 000 de habtantes es la quinta cuidad más grande de España.
2. Es la capital de Aragón, situada en las orillas del río Ebro.
3. El nombre Zaragoza proviene de Ceasaraugusta.
4. El símbolo de la cuidad es la Basílica de Nuestra Señora de Pilar. Dice la leyenda, que la vírgen apareció en un pilar, en siglo 1. En ese sitio se construyó la basílica que lleva el nombre Pilar.
5. La basílica es el único templo cristiano que tiene símbolos taoístas. En el 1936 fue bombardeada pero las bombas nunca llegaron a explotar.
6. El famoso pintor, Francisco Goya, pasó una parte de su vida en Zaragoza y muchos sitios de la ciudad están dedicadas a él. Goya también pintó el interior de las cúpulas de la basílica.
7. Aljafería, otro símbolo de Zaragoza, es el palacio árabe situado más al norte del mundo (lo vais a ver en el siguiente post).
8. Primera película española (Salida de Misa del Pilar) se rodó en Zaragoza en 1896, solo un año despues de la invención del cine.
9. Hay varias leyendas urbanas relacionadas con asuntos paranormales como el Duende de Zaragoza,
la maldita habitación 510 del hotel Corona de Aragón y el fantasma de la Torre Nueva.
10. Zaragoza vivó su máximo esplendor en el siglo 16. En esa época se conocía como la "Florencia española" o la "ciudad de las cien torres".

1. Saragosa se nalazi na severo-istoku Španije, između Madrida i Barselone, a sa svojih 666 000 stanovnika je peti španski grad po veličini.
2. Glavni je grad autonomne pokrajne Aragon, i nalazi se na obali reke Ebro, jedne od najvažnijih španskih reka.
3. Ime Saragosa (Zaragoza) potiče od starorimskog imena Ceaseruugusta.
4. Simbol grada je Bazilika Pilar. Legenda kaže da se Bogorodica pojavila u 1. veku stojeći na stubu, pa je u to ime podignut hram posvećen njoj (reč pilar na španskom znači stub, pa odatle i potiče ime Pilar).
5. Ova baziilika je jedini hrišćanski hram koji sadrži simbole taoizma. Iako je bazilika je bombardovana 1936. godine, ostala je očuvana jer bombe nikada nisu eksplodirale.
6. Poznati španski slikar, Fransisko Goja, proveo je deo svog života u Saragosi, a razni spomenici i kuturna oboležja su posvećena upravo njemu. Goja je takođe naslikao unutrašnjost kupola već pomenute bazilike.
7. Palata Alhaferia iz Mavarskog perioda je još jedna značajna znamenitost Saragose, a ujedno i najsevernija arapska palata na svetu. O njoj nešto više u sledećem postu.
8. Prvi španski film je snimljen u Saragosi 1896. godine, samo godinu dana nakon osnivanja bioskopa.
9. Saragosa je poznata i po urbanim legendama o paranormalnim pojavama kao što su vilenjak iz Saragose, duh koji živi u jednom od tornjeva i ukleta soba 510 hotela Corona de Aragón čiji su gosti misteriozno nastradali u požaru.
10. Zlatno doba Saragose je bio 16. vek, a tada su je zvali "španska Firenca" i "grad stotinu tornjeva".

      Jeste, baš je idealan za tako kraću posetu. Hvala ti puno od oboje :)

  14. ovo su mi možda i najdraži postovi, gdje nas upoznaješ s nekim gradovima koji i nisu toliko poznati široj javnosti. Sada sam još jednom bacila oko i baš sam oduševljena ovim fotografijama, pogotovo onom jednom kupolom koja izgleda kao da svijetli...čaroban grad i fotografije. Još mi se više sviđaju sada kada i vidim na većem ekranu...i moram primijetiti taj slatki šal.
    veliki pozdrav!

    1. Baš mi je drago :) Uvek mi treba mnogo više vremena kada su ovakvi postovi u pitanju jer stvarno prilazim svemu kao da je najvažnija stvar na svetu. O količini slika da ne govorim :) Ali drago mi je da ima vas koje uživate u tome, a tako je i meni lakše i dobijam dodatnu inspiraciju :)
      Grad je stvarno divan, a verujem potpuno nepoznat van Španije, idealan je za kratku posetu i promenu ambijenta :)
      Da, taj šal sam nosila kad god je bilo hladno proteklih meseci, stvarno je prava stvar.
      Pozdravljam i ja tebe! :)

  29. Joj kako ja volim ovakve postove :) Prekul su mi uvijek volim saznati koju više o nekom gradu/mjesto! Ipak, preko tebe sam saznala toliko toga da imam pravi mali kušlus u glavi od svih tih informacija o Španjolskoj općenito, ali ipak- bring it on!:)
    Posebno mi je zanimljiva činjenica kako niti jedna bomba nije eksplodirala za vrijeme bombardiranja bazilike... baš lijepo! Također,vjerujem da bi i mene ludo zaintrigirale sve one misterije pod točkom devet! :)
    Ti si predivna u crvenom, a uvijek uživam vidjeti tebe i Ulija zajedno, uvijek ste tako lijepi i modno usklađeni... ja pomalo patim na to, jer mi to nikako ili rijetko imamo :P Divan posT! :****

      Da, stvarno čudo za bombe, a ove spooky stvari su skroz moj fazon, ja sam ti između ostalog i veliki Fox Mulder u duši :D
      Hvala ti! :) Često mislim da bi mogla da se obrne situacija, da Uli radi ovo šta ja, a ja da fotografišem jer pored njega mi to postaje glavni hobi :) Ma šta ima veze, svaki par ima neke svoje posebne stvari, poklapanja i odudaranja ;) :***

  31. Again, you took great photos, my dear Tijana and seriously - I'm amazed by this baroque temple, it's so huge and marvelous building, especially I love the photo which was taken by night - it shows how terrific this temple is:) What about your outfit, I really like everything, what you was wearing on that day, especially I like your shoes - I saw similar on Zara few months ago and now I regret that I didn't buy them ;P
