El Tubo District, Zaragoza. Image reproduced by permission of the Zaragoza Tourist Board
El Tubo is a city centre area of the city of Zaragoza, often frequented for eating Spanish tapas and especially lively in the evening.
El Tubo is a perfect place to enjoy the tradition of eating Spanish tapas in several different bars, and we recommend doing so if you want to experience the best of the miniature cuisine of the city of Zaragoza. It has a special charm with its wide streets full of people, many of whom are sitting on stools savouring Spanish tapas from various bars. This district is located between Mártires, Estébanes and Cuatro de Agosto Streets, and each of its bars tends to be specialised in a different Spanish tapa. There are also restaurants to enjoy more traditional food. Furthermore there are interesting buildings in the area, such as the San Gil Abad Church and the Prior Ortal, Torrero and Canal Houses. Furthermore, as it is a city centre district, it is near the area of the city with the most monuments as well as the Palace of the Counts of Sástago, the Palace of Montemuzo, and even the Pilar square with its impressive basilica.
