  • After many years we come back to visit this village and follow spectacular, a visit must be done without fail, forced stroll through its streets and steep stairways, wander through its streets and its restaurants and enjoy the views of its walls.

  • Beautiful people to get lost by the and stroll. Just wander and get lost. You can go up to the Castle and make a path by the river. That if you're going to the beat. If you go in Teruel is a must-see.

  • It was a big surprise visit to Albarracín. A wonderful place to visit, with history and nature. Essential route around the town on the banks of the River (ask at the tourist office). A great place to go with children and adolescents.

  • It seems a new Cathedral, as if behind a heavy drapery was another unknown monument. However, with its restoration, what has been done has been rescue which might have more than two centuries ago, and that hid his more contemporary repainting the color and luminosity. Albarracín Cathedral looks now renewed, thanks to the work carried out by the Santa María Foundation,

  • the location of the Cathedral is not entirely correct. It should go higher on the same street, visit is very interesting, the guide is the essence of it. I met this village just 2 years after making her heritage and it has been changed and improved a lot, now deserves a full day's visit. in Europe with much less villages of pilgrimage of tourists make authentic. is e the good line

  • A village so small and a cathedral gives idea that we are not in one town either. Practically everything in Albarracín is worth
