We didn’t know what to expect in Zamora and where suprised to find a very beautiful town with many historic buildings, mostly from the roman period of the 12th and 13th century. Zamora is the city with the most Romanesque churches in all of Europe!

The town has 2 free parkings for campers, which were well used. We found a spot at the one next to the river, from where it was a short walk over the old bridge into the centre.

The Cathedral of Zamora was built in the 12th century and is one of the finest examples of Spanish Romanesque architecture.
It is still surrounded by the old city walls and gates. Special is the roof of the dome which is covered with stone slabs like scales.

In the cloister of the cathedral an exhibition shows fine Flemish tapestries of the 15th–17th centuries which really fascinated us.
