Albarracin is probably the most beautiful town in all of Aragon,some would argue in all of Spain but to speak of superlatives when speaking of towns in Spain is like trying to judge a Miss Universe pageant where ever contestant is beautiful in her own way! I thoroughly enjoyed my visit and after walking its' streets and enjoying some cold brew with local cheese and charcuterie to gain some sustenance I headed up towards the town's walls. I eventually found the little path and after about 15 minutes I was walking in the shadow of these immense walls. I thought to myself if these walls could talk the centuries of stories they could tell! I tried to resist looking back down until I was as high as possible,but of course the view was always good and like an incredibly attractive person I just couldn't take my eyes off this fabled town. When I finally reached the highest point I could I was rewarded with a most wonderful view of Albarracin and its' surroundings! Yes it's true one must be careful and yes I know that those with physical disabilities will find it hard to access but are there solutions to this? Maybe but one must be careful because if you pave the path and put guardrails, maybe a road with a parking lot...well you risk the area losing its' enchantment sorry but we all know that's true. The short hike had me huffing and puffing but I did it and promised myself I need to get back in shape! The walls are just one component of Albarracin,others are its' ancient streets, its' surrounding scenery which at times can be quite dramatic another its' river and the trail that follows it (I'll do that one next time!). But definitely if you're able to make the effort to climb above the town to see Albarracin's walls and take in the views from above, you'll be happy you did!

These impressive walls tell the story of the Medieval times in Aragon, during the times of Reconquest, and the many wars that followed. I highly recommend walking outside the town and then around the walls to appreciate its magnificence and great state of conservation.

I’m sure that we will never forget our first glimpse of Albarracin when we drove through a steep, rocky canyon and saw the red coloured houses clinging to the rocks beneath the incredible castle walls that climb high above and around the village. A truly magnificent sight, and one that gets even better when you wander round this beautiful medieval village.

Breath taking, not only for the views on the village and surroundings but above all because it's not easy to get up there :-)

From whatever direction you enter Alabarracin (which we did) the views on the walls is always amazing. The only (but important) trouble is that the city and the walls are situated on top of a hill; entrance into the city with a car is prohibited; I can understand; but exploring the city and the walls is absolutely for elderly people who have difficulties walking; moreover the streets are extremely steep and the cobblestones very slippery, even when they are not wet. But well worth the detour.
