Belchite, Zaragoza

(3.9/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
Visit the abandoned village that was the site of one of the bloodiest battles of the Spanish Civil War. Belchite looks much the same as it did on September 7th, 1937, when the two-week battle ended. It serves as a poignant reminder of the destruction wrought by the conflict. The village can only be explored via a guided tour. Listen to your guide explain more about the civil war and this particular battle. Take in the ruined homes, church, and clock tower. Don't stray too far from your guide, as there is a risk of falling masonry. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Zaragoza holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Belchite and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • If you have opportunity, I think it is a visit that should not fail to see. The old town of Belchite is preserved as it was in the Civil War. It is like returning to the past and really impresses

  • The town is made of powder and is falling to pieces, but is a place to go and meditate about what should never happen.

  • The guided tour is correct except for the lexicon used "national forces" "prisoners of war who built the new village", I understand that a prisoner of war ceases in its condition when it ends the war, holding him prisoner violated the Geneva Convention and becomes a hostage or a slave on the winning side of the war. And a monument, under my point of view, which could infringe the law of historical memory.
