- Early music festival recommended for Zaragoza visitors

June 17, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News highlights travellers spending time in Zaragoza hotels this summer may decide to explore the areas surrounding the city.

One place likely to feature in any excursion is the historic city of Daroca, which is located to the south of Zaragoza and well known for the festival of early music it hosts each year.

Traditionally taking place in early August, this event is the oldest summer festival in the region of Aragon and features a variety of concerts at various venues.

Items on last year's programme included Italian Madrigals of the sixteenth and seventeenth century, chamber music in the time of Handel and Portuguese sacred music of the seventeenth to nineteenth centuries.

Each concert at the Festival de Musica Antigua offers free entry, so attending the festival can be good way for Zaragoza visitors to explore a nearby city at no extra expense.

Containing one of the largest collections of medieval buildings in this part of Spain, Daroca is popular with holidaymakers who are interested in the history of the country.

The city centre is enclosed by a 13th century wall and people venturing inside will find several famous monuments and a number of spectacular churches, including the Santo Domingo de Silos and San Miguel.

Commenting on the early Festival de Musica Antigua, Jessica Reading, head of marketing for LateRooms, said: "We strongly urge people thinking of going to see the early music festival and who need hoteles en Zaragoza to book early to avoid disappointment."
