Albarracín is a unique place. Strolling through the streets, hiking along the city walls and entering various monuments is like taking a trip to the Middle Ages. You will admire every corner, its reddish houses, doors and knockers, tiny windows with lace curtains or the endless balconies in rich wrought iron and carved wood. Not to mention the wonderful views that you will get from its enviable location.
If you want to enjoy the natural environment of Albarracín, you can take a pleasant hike along the Guadalaviar river and walk along the river which meanders around the town.
In its surroundings there is also one of the most surprising landscape and cultural complexes in Aragon: the Protected Landscape of Pinares de Rodeno. The chromatic contrasts between the green of the pine forest and the red of sandstone create a space of great color, strength and beauty. Excellent samples of Levantine cave paitings, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, are preserved in its rocky shelters…. Albarracín : Turismo de Aragón
The Fluvial Walk
The Albarracín fluvial walk is a short trail that starts from the town of Albarracín itself, and runs through a small part of the river plain. It is suitable for all ages, since it is a short path in good condition.
The river walk runs through the entire meander that surrounds Albarracín, so we can see the river up close, even passing through the walkways, and we will see Albarracín and its imposing wall from another perspective. The path leaves from the park that is next to the parking lots. You can also start from a path that starts in the middle of the road that goes up to the old town, before reaching the church of Santa María, or from the path under the Portal del Agua.
Pinares de Rodeno
The Protected Landscape of the Pinares del Rodeno is a natural space that stands out for its uniqueness and for the close relationship between flora, fauna, geology and human activity. This site offers you many possibilities at any time of year, such as hiking, mycological outings, climbing and cultural visits. In addition, many of these activities are ideal for families with children because there are trails of low difficulty, and the cave paintings are an art of great attraction for the little ones.

The Calomarde Waterfall
The Calomarde Waterfall, also popularly known as the Cascada del Molino Viejo or Cascada batida de Calomarde, is a spectacular waterfall located in the Sierra de Albarracín, in Teruel. A great fall with more than 20 meters of height from the riverbed of the Blanco river that is born a few kilometers from here. The place is perfect to get away from the suffocating summer heat and cool off in this magical environment and in winter, ideal to enjoy its beauty.
