ALBARRACÍN (Teruel) (I)
Albarracín for many is one of the most spectacular and beautiful towns in Spain. Reasons for this consideration are not lacking, given that its unique location and its enormous historical heritage are just some of its innumerable virtues.
This charming Aragonese town is only 38 km from Teruel and has a population of 1.100 inhabitants. The historic center of Albarracín is perched on a rock on the side of a hill in the Universal Mountains, and is almost completely surrounded by the Guadalaviar River. The villa is 1.171 meters above sea level.
Touring Albarracín we will meet a network of steep and narrow streets, with many extremely picturesque corners. Looking at the river we can appreciate the different buildings of the calls hanging houses.
Arriving at the town, its urban walls show a medieval panorama of amazement, with the set that makes up the curtain of walls of Christian construction and dating from the twelfth century, with various prismatic towers that go up the hills.
To visit the walls we have three possible itineraries, one from Calle del Chorro, another from the church of Santiago, and the last from Portal de Molina.
