Night Zaragoza. The Ebro river and sqare of the Pilar
In the Evening I took my tripod and went to familiar places to do night shots. My walk I started with the bridge of Almosara (map). Although he was here yesterday, but was too lazy in the evening to hang with the photo bag, so were armed only 24mm fix. (Moral - always carry a full set of optics!). Today, with the help of telephoto 70-300 will try to see the Cathedral of the virgin Pilar better. Unfortunately, perfect sharpness on the bridge will not be forthcoming, as it drive cars and on the sidewalk, towering over him, the vibrations adding fans of late-night joggers and cyclists. But the stabilizer from Canon was on top, even after prolonged exposure.
to the Right, over the area of San Pablo stands the bell tower of the eponymous Church, the most important architectural monument in the style of "Mudejar Aragonese".
Bridge Santiago (map), behind the line which starts from the historical area of Zaragoza, Cesaraugusta, on behalf of the Roman town. Very similar to the Arabic word "Zaragoza" has been derived from this name, changed their sound during the Muslim era.
Along the waterfront I walked up to the Cathedral. In the morning there appeared an endless canopies catering food traders - the city is preparing for its main holiday - the festival of the virgin of Pilar. In 2014 the festival was held from 3 to 13 October, sorry no time to look at this wonderful holiday.
Another photo from the Stone bridge. It offers the best view of the Cathedral of the virgin of Pilar.
Cathedral of the Savior of Zaragoza. That's such a wonderful city Zaragoza - even cathedrals in it two - the virgin of Pilar and Savior! To the right of the bell tower is a futuristic building, under which there are excavations of the Roman forum.
Panorama of the main facade of the Cathedral of Pilar. Here it is possible to estimate the magnitude of the stunning structure. Even the main portals at the Church two.
