Albarracín, Teruel (Aragón), HDR

Albarracin is in the Aragon region of Spain in the Teruel province.

Albarracin is one of Spain's more beautiful villages and if you are in the Aragon region you should definitely head in this direction. The village is set on a cliff above the Rio Guadalaviar and its medieval houses have remained virtually unchanged for centuries. The town has been listed as a National Monument since 1961 and has received an international award for the quality of its preservation.

The village winds up the cliff in steep, cobbled streets and as you climb you get to see all the tall, balconied, medieval houses. At the top of the village is the castle and the views from here over the village and the surrounding National Park and the Universale Mountains is fantastic.

The medieval defensive walls of Albarracin are much longer than the town itself and if you approach Albarracin from the town of Teruel you get an excellent view of these. Indeed the drive is a lovely one through great scenery (spainthisway.com).

Albarracín es una localidad y municipio del suroeste de la provincia de Teruel, en la comunidad de Aragón, España.

El pueblo está encaramado en un peñón y rodeado por el Guadalaviar. Por este lado y mirando hacia el río se hallan edificadas las casas colgadas. Dentro del pueblo sus calles son empinadas y estrechas, con rincones muy pintorescos. La construcción ofrece la original arquitectura popular con la forja propia de la provincia además de tener el color rojizo característico llamado rodeno (Wikipedia).
