Just at Zaragoza outskirts there is a cool natural zone for breaking with the urban routine!
The Juslibol "Galachos" are a natural formation made by the old river channel. Since Ebro changed its route, the water left there made lakes where animals and plants found paradise, that's why is a great place for birthwatching or spendind a day under tree shadows. In the park information centre you can find all the info about it, as well as interactive demonstrations.
But one of the coolest things is the area around the reserve itself, since its the abrupt start of the desert. You can get up to the cliffs by several man made trails, you just need confortable shoes. The contrast between both areas is impressive.
You can get to Juslibol from Zaragoza without the need of getting to road, its connected by city streets. You need to leave the car in the village (park the car where you can or go straight to the closed fence, where there is a lot of parking but road becomes a dirtroad) and walk to the info centre of the reserve (30 minutes, I recommend doing the cliffs trail on the way) or take the minitrain for 2€ that will take you infront of the info centre, also on the way back, that train goes nearby to Grancasa Shopping centre in the city itself, so you can get to the reserve by public bus and minitrain. Timetables avaliable here.
Coming here can be a great way to have an awesome morning, or you can spend the whole day here, since sunsets from the cliffs are impressive.
