One of the best things to do in Zamora, especially if you've had enough for the moment of huge gothic cathedrals and Spanish baroque, is to wander about on foot looking at the romanesque churches, for which it's famous. San Antolin, for example, with its odd platform behind the tower (for bell-ringers ? for feeding the storks ?), San Juan in the Plaza Mayor, San Pedro, San Vicente (near the square), La Maddalena, the Cathedral (the famous "scaly" dome at least). And from the same period El Cid's house (outside the gate on the river side of the cathedral - it's private so you can't go in, but if you stand outside you have a magnificent view over the river Duero), Dona Urraca's castle (currently being restored, but you can still see it), and Treason Gate (the same - it commemorates the assassination of King Sancho II)… Also the old Roman Bridge, best seen in early morning or evening, when the sun's not too hot and its horizontal rays catch the side of the bridge, reflecting it in the river). Perhaps the most pleasant town in Spain.
