Albarracín, just 28 km from Teruel, is one ofthe least known and most breathtaking places in Spain. Visitors to this beautiful Spanish village will be amazed by the unspoilt beauty of Albarracin, set in one of Spain's national parks in the the Universale mountains at 3.400 feet and overlooking the Guadalivar River.
To visit Albarracín
and walk around its steep narrow cobbled
streets is to go back centuries in time.
The higher you climb, the tighter the
bundle of little pituresque houses gets,
and when you arrive at the top and walk
up to the castle, the view of the village
and its surrounding is simply breathtaking.
Open all year, the hotel is located in the old quarter of the town, only 21 miles from historical city of Teruel.
borders of the three former kingdoms
of Castilla, Aragon and Valencia meet
at Albarracin, which gave it particular
strategic importance in Spanish history
and helps explain the presence of buildings
with Moorish features and impressive
old stone buildings, homes to nobles
in the Middle Ages when Queen Isabel
(Castilla) and King Fernando (Aragon)
unified the Spanish kingdoms by their
marriage and Spain went on to overcome
Albarracin has a good selection of hotels, but visitors can also stay at the Parador in Teruel as it is only a half hour drive, and the scenery along the route from Teruel to Albarracín is wonderful.
