place to place
Then, when somebody asks to them
what has seemed them Saragossa,
they are asked if really underneath
of those urban structures
that they perceived from the stop
of the tower of the Pillar,
there was life.
This guide of Saragossa that you have between the hands picks up the spirit of Jose Antonio Labordeta, the one of the traveller that the city of its people crosses, the one of the day to day, the one of the daily pulse. It is an invitation to invent the city to you, “because it is an open space that what needs, indeed, is imagination… to discover by your account, beautiful places that are them”. An invitation to take a walk with the mentality not to see great architectonic works, but to visit the Saragossa that a day their neighbors dreamed but who the “ventera reality of this country destroyed”. Only thus you will make of your stroll a great adventure that will make discover hidden corners, streets, places you and singular buildings that you will not find in the great official guides. A route “of daily character and until of I gossip slight” after the tracks that a José Antonio day it shaped in its ‘Saragossa, place to place’. A text in which the poet laments himself first of the lost city, of the city extraordinary stepmother and desbarajustada, of the Saragossa who could be and are not, for next taking to you of the hand by a different Saragossa “and distant”, full of small details that, in spite of the destructions of the Sites of Saragossa and the Barbarian mattock, it will enamor to you.
Thus, jumping of place in place, Labordeta it marks the route to us that will guide ours to walk. And without forgetting his words we will imagine outlines different to load our backpack of own experiences. Because José Antonio challenges to you to that you do it, to that you invent your way and that this guide is not than a departure proposal more so that it benefits and you combine it as more you like.
