The City of Zaragoza is located at an altitude of 240 metres above sea level, on the right bank of the river in the Middle Ebro Valley, where in addition two other rivers, the Gallego and the Huerva, and the Imperial Canal of Aragon flow together. The 2001 census placed its population at 614,905 inhabitants, making it the fifth largest city in Spain.
Zaragoza is the capital and political and administrative centre of the Autonomous Community of Aragon, one of the 17 Autonomous Communities comprising the Spanish state. It has a total area of 47,650 square kilometres, or 9.44% of the national territory. The metropolitan area covers1,059.9 square kilometres, thus being one of the largest in Spain.
Zaragoza is an incomparable city. Its Iberian, Roman, Moslem and Christian past have each contributed their part to making it the beautiful and surprising city it is today.
Zaragoza is conveniently linked to the national and European road systems through the Ebro axis, the Mediterranean and Atlantic motorways, and by the central pass through the Pyrenees at Somport, the upper end of the future north-south link to the Mediterranean Coast.
