Belchite, Zaragoza

(340+ reviews on the web)
Monument
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.
