What to Eat in Zaragoza
Zaragoza is known to produce some of Spain’s highest quality meats, so you’ll find that roasted or barbecued meat is a predominant feature of the local diet. Ternasco, a roasted lamb dish, is one such speciality. In addition, seafood is very popular, with dishes like locally caught trout and eel on the menu. However, vegetarians have plenty of options too. Produce is locally grown, and pulses are widely available. Truffles are a particular speciality you should try. Lastly, as locals love to end their meals with good cheeses and wines, cow, goat and sheep cheeses can be found fresh or cured. Generally, seek out meals in the traditional tapas style to taste a huge array of dishes in one sitting.
The Weather in Zaragoza
Summer in Zaragoza lasts from June to September when the temperatures heat up a lot and the days are long and sunny. If you’re travelling during these months, you’ll love sitting al fresco and enjoying your lunch with a view or cooling off with an evening cocktail. Zaragoza is a great destination to visit in the off-season too. The weather cools off quite a bit and can be particularly chilly between December and February, but the days stay dry with little chance of rain.
