Every evening during the OSM, a social activity has been planned. We encourage you to take part in as many events as possible, to enjoy the full OSM experience as much as possible!
The Aragonese Parliament has generously provided free tickets (normal entry price 5 Euros) to all OSM participants to visit the Aljafería Palace between 18:00-20:00. Each day, 250 tickets will be on offer at the registration desk.
The Aljafería Palace is now the seat of the Aragon Parliament. The building provides a glimpse of the multicultural history of the city: the delicate ornamental beauty of a Muslim 11th century palace, its extraordinary wooden ceilings, carved by the Moorish artists who worked on the medieval Christian palace, and the Catholic Kings throne room, with its spectacular golden and painted wooden roof. The Aljafería has lived through many changes. Following its restoration, it is now a lively and open building, and a cultural landmark in the city.
