Albarracín Travel Guide: 37 reviews and 66 photos

Albarracín, Aragon, Spain

Albarracín is a small village located at over 1,100 metres of altitude, south of Aragon, near Teruel (NE Spain). Its UNESCO-awarded medieval quarter represents an outstanding architectural victory over the humble building materials used along hundreds of years. Excellent tour guides, and accommodation, complete a full Medieval, Christian, Arabic and even Prehistoric art experience. All that in a history-packed village built under the shelter of a mountain.

Be ready for cold nights and bring comfortable shoes though!!!!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:So much history and art in such a tiny place
  • Cons:There is only one daily bus service from Teruel (1 hour)
  • In a nutshell:More than I expected from such a small place, totally picturesque
