VII Saucepolis Photo Contest ‘Zaragoza Close to you’

We are glad to announce a new edition of our annual Saucepolis photo contest: ‘Zaragoza Close to You’, through which we promote the image of Zaragoza and we share with you one of our biggest hobbies: photography.

Throughout these years we have had the opportunity to discover original and beautiful views of our city and the chance to learn more about or favorite hobby through Elena de la Rua´s talks during the award ceremonies. Furthermore, we have made a bunch of friends with whom to share our two mutual passions: photography and the city of Zaragoza.

Road trip, the journey and the road we are travelling. A photography talk at hotel Sauce

Elena de la Rúa pleasantly surprised us one more time. Our annual photography event  proved to be a very  nice evening  that we had the chance to share with friends that are part of the hotel, fans of photography, our photography contest participants  and old friends from the last competition editions.  Some of the greatest XXth Century North American photographers  were mentioned in the talk by Elena in the attractive assembly room where the event took place,  this is our “Salón Caravana” ( Caravan Room ) , a peculiar room with a lot of personality.

Benidorm or burst: Interview with the pig’s drivers

I was walking back to the hotel reception after accompanying a host to the Sabinas El Pilar Apartments when I saw a strange pink vehicle parked right in front of the hotel, with many people around it taking pictures. As I approached, to my surprise, I noticed that the car was the shape of a pig! Instead of asking its owners if they were coming to the hotel and helping them with their luggage, as we normally would do, I couldn’t help but ask them: “Why are you driving a pig?” David Hillson, David Hillson Jr, Philip Hillson and Carlos Nighlugal (two brothers, their father and a friend) explained that they were participating in the sixth annual Benidorm or Bust Rally along with more than 200 other creative automobiles.


Historical Reenactment in Zaragoza: Interview with Bartolomiej Wielocha

Bartolomiej Wielocha (Warsaw, 30) is a construction engineer, but a few weeks ago he became the protector of the Polish army flag bearer, which fought on the French side of the battle of Zaragoza during the Peninsular War.

Napoleon had conquered Poland and, as he did with other conquered nations, he forced the military elite to join the French ranks on other fronts in Europe. Two centuries later, a group of historical re-enactors of the nineteenth century Polish army crossed Europe by bus for two days with Zaragoza as their destination. They stayed at the Sauce Hotel, located a few dozen meters from the Coso, where they were once overrun by the Zaragoza resistance.
