The José Luis Abós Pavilion, also formerly known as the Príncipe Felipe Pavilion, is the largest indoor stadium in Zaragoza, with a capacity of up to 10.744 seats for visitors who want to enjoy the games. The Pabellón José Luis Abós indoor stadium was completed and inaugurated on 17 April 1990 on Avenida Césareo Alierta.
This project was created to provide the city of Zaragoza with a sports facility and is therefore multifunctional. However, the Pabellón José Luis Abós was created mainly to accommodate basketball fans. The project started in 1988 and cost around 12 million euros. This stadium has hosted several top-level European tournaments in basketball, handball, futsal, tennis, etc.

You can park around the stadium, near the road Cam. Del Junco road. These parking spaces do not belong to the stadium, so they can be surprisingly expensive if you arrive unprepared. In addition, parking without a reservation can be a challenge during sporting events.
The stadium is surrounded by residential areas where you can park on the street like the locals. You can park, for example, on the street of the Duchy of Athens, which is situated next to the stadium, but be careful because in some places, parking is not allowed and your car might be towed away.
To go to the Jose Luis Abós, you can also use the city bus lines and the suburban bus, because if you come by car, parking can be a bit complicated as the pavilion does not have its own car park.

If you come, for example, by suburban or regional train, Miraflores Station is located behind the pavilion.
