Belchite, Zaragoza

3.9
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. Using our custom trip planner, Zaragoza attractions like Belchite can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Along with my partner we did night guided by old Belchite and it is incredible. "Nati" guide is very good and did us have a very good time.

  • One of the best tours I've ever made. Ghost town with lots of history. The place is beautiful and bleak at the same time, and together with the guides of the place, make you become part of the story, understand what happened and live part of the horror that was experienced between those walls.

Where to stay in Zaragoza

When visiting this historical city, most visitors opt to stay in the old quarter, or Casco Viejo, for its convenient proximity to many of the city's iconic landmarks and compact network of local eateries, shops, and traditional architecture. The old quarter is located along the Ebre River meaning that you are only a scenic waterfront stroll away from the rest of the city's buzzing neighborhoods. Several newer hotels are located in the commercial zone centered around Gran Via, one of the city's main arteries, where plenty of shops and well-known restaurants line the buzzing streets. Alternatively, head to the University district for a mix of eclectic shops, quaint cafes, and a vibrant nightlife, where accommodation tends to be a bit cheaper.
