Teruel Exists & Albarracín Persists

Tour to Teruel and Albarracín from Valencia

Frontier lands: lost between the mountains and time.

We will start our adventure and travel in time. We will relive distant times in which Moorish and Christian peoples coexisted and fought on the frontier. You will get to know the thrilling and tragic story of the Lovers of Teruel: an authentic Spanish love tale which happened 350 years before Shakespeare wrote Romeo & Juliet. We will discover the Mudéjar architecture which is World Heritage and the fruit of the meeting of civilizations in Teruel.

Hidden among the mountains, we will storm the defiant walled town of Albarracín; majestic, proud and independent. This is without a doubt one of the most beautiful villages in Europe. Erected on a rock and protected by a river, it offers a portal into another time.
