The former capital of a Moorish kingdom (Taifa), the small town of Albarracín has preserved all its Islamic and mediaeval flavour. Its old quarter has the Property of Cultural Interest designation.
The main thing that surprises visitors who arrives at the town of Albarracín is its imposing fortified enclosure, whose perimeter is far larger than the area of the urban centre. What we see today corresponds to three different periods of construction.

On Sunday we will explore Albaracin, the City walls and follow the River and do the flat fluvial walk. We plan to stop for lunch in Teruel on the return journey but that may change depending on time.


Accomodation is in 3 or 4 bedded dorms in the youth hostel which is right in the centre of town.
