About Zaragoza

Zaragoza is empty. ¡Help us to map it!

Zaragoza is the fifth city in population of Spain. It is situated just between Madrid and Barcelona, 300 kilometers away from both. It has Iberian, Roman, Muslim and Christian monuments such as the Basilica of Our Lady of the Pillar, the Aljafería Palace and La Seo Cathedral. With a 60,000 students university, a lively nightlife is guaranteed.

The city is preparing itself for the upcoming International Expo 2008 (14th June to 14th September), an event which will attract thousands of visitors from the rest of Spain and Europe.

The current mapping status is 'just started to work on it'. Most of the main streets are lacking.

What you need

  • A GPS: recommended, but not essential. You probably know someone who can lend you one or help on the other tasks while the others are recording tracks (editing and uploading).
  • A camera: useful for mapping but also to have a nice souvenir
  • Predisposal for having fun: required
