Nice city for walk and have fun
too far from any touristic spot
A beautiful place for a weekend break
This fantastic Romanesque Cathedral was built between 1.151 and 1.174. Elements were added to the cathedral over the years and include Gothic features (apses and sanctuary) and Herrera style features (cloister). The building has three naves, a transept and three semicircular apses.For more pics, see next two tips.more

Zamora has lots of Romanesque churches, all built around the same time as the cathredral (12th century). Some have been restored and other styles have been added later on. But they're all very simple without much decoration. The churches usually are open for visits in the mornings and the late afternoons.more
The most prominent landmark of Zamora is the Romanesque cathedral from the 12th century. It has two different towers, one square Romanesque, the other with a cuppola is built in Byzantine style. You can visit the cathedral for a few hours in the morning and in late afternoon.Next to it is a museum showing Flemish tapestriesmore

This time, my 33 years old celebration had a hard handicap: my sister, her boyfriend and two more friends were planning to join us...They are about 23 years old, and they are used to live all the night long.Look carefully at them: they are smiling for the experiences they were preparing to us!more
Zamora is in the west of Spain, very close to Portugal.From Madrid, take road A6 that becomes AP6 to Tordesillas, then, road A11 to Toro and Zamora.Some road distances from Zamora to:- Madrid: 254 kms.- Paris (France): 1.245 kms.- Roma/Rome (Italy): 2.049 kms.Thanks to the website, you can check more road distances together with the driving times...more
The easiest way to go from Madrid to Zamora is by bus (unless you have your own vehicle). The buses are very modern and you have lots of space, as there are just 3 seats in a row. The journey takes about 3 hours and there are 6 buses per day. The fare for the express bus is 17€, the "normal" one costs 12.more
To be perfectly honest I am not sure on what it is usually like in Zanora, I went on what was probably the busiest day in the year for one of the Easter Processions. They were being pretty hot on parking and had lots of restrictions.As we were just about to leave, this Police got was being towed away, I suspect it might have been broken down rather...more
If you feel bad, never, never think about this doctor: she is called "Blood Doctor".I was looking carefully all the night, and her methods are really unexpected: drink room for keeping herself up, dance for getting people attencion...PLEASE: don't get close her, and don't touch her (if it is not necessary).more
I'm sure you remember them...
You could see them in Lisbon...
Unique Suggestions: Beware of giving them a beer!
They change into more dangerous...
Fun Alternatives: Give them more than one beer!
Perhaps you can gain their trust...
