Last 19th July the Heraldo de Aragón Newspaper, in its Sunday edition, made reference to two of the main streets that are in Saucepolis territory and become part of Saragossa: Alfonso I and Don Jaime I.

These streets are two of the most known, with a long history, a privileged localization and lots of shops that, mainly in Don Jaime, resist to the standardization and clonation of tastes and products that are common of different commercial zones.

Both streets are located in the old quarter of the city of Saragossa, where our Sabinas Apartaments and Hotel Sauce are located, but each one has its own history:

Alfonso Street

This street suffered the urbanity reform during the end of the 19th century and all this supposed a social and commercial change. A large number of the high classes moved to this street and it allowed the creation of a new commercial zone full of shops.

Nowadays, Alfonso I has become one of the main streets of the modern Saragossa. You can find among its streets a place full of restaurants and bars where you can taste the famous “tapas”.

Don Jaime Street

This street was also renovated in the 19th century. For the reconstruction, some houses and churches had to be demolished.  It also became a very important commercial street of the city, and even nowadays, some of these shops are still there, like the oldest bakery of the city, “Fantoba”.


No matter how many times you walk around these streets, because you will always find something new!!
