Belchite, Zaragoza
(3.8/5 based on 280+ 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.

  • The sites abandoned always have their charm and visit Belchite has seemed a good idea to see the consequences that had the civil war, bumping with feelings and imagine as you live there. This rather "whole", despite being a village demolished. Did the visit night, but had much cold and not could see too. If topas with a good guide if deserves much the penalty that visit, since would give pretty little thing hablandote of them stories of ghosts of there and seeing it down and dark of the place. The next day we went back to see it day, this time by the walk out without paying the visit. And it seemed to us very curious, essential! The truth is that the issue of the guidelines if it would be looking to improve. I don't know if we had bad luck, but the Guide, although it was very nice, didn't tell the story well and many things explained them half or pieces... For what costs the visit believe that would have that review that aspect.

  • Close to Zaragoza and a visit that leaves no one indifferent by the history that has, that narrate the constructions and the State of the ruins. Disturbing the night tour

  • It is a very nice place to visit if you like history and want to discover what remains of other times. More or less well preserved although it could be better.
