History literally flows from the walls of Albarracín. Ancient cathedrals, rock paintings, stone towers, narrow alleys and bridges are all frozen in the Middle Ages. Albarracín is a historic and breathtaking town that stands out for its sites, solitude and stories.
The town is listed as one of Spain’s Monumentos Nacional , and signs at the city limits proudly show its designation as “one of the most beautiful sites in Spain” The architecture and the name both hint at its ancient roots; a dynasty started in Morocco spread all the way to this town, and ruled over it for centuries.
