Visiting Belchite is truly a sobering experience. It is on the scale of visiting the massive cemeteries of the First World War, and is no less impressive. The ruined town, left as a memorial to the sacrifices of the Spanish people (and volunteers) during the...More

A sad, strange monument to the reality of war. Visits aren't possible without a guide for good reason, Belchite is truly a ruined village, side by side with the modern village. Fuentetodos, Goya's birthplace is about 15 km down the road from Belchite and is...More

A haunting, but very interesting, bombed-out town that has been preserved to display the horrors of war. Very unusual.

An amazing walk back in time. Walking around Belchite was a chilling and moving experience. One of the Spanish Civil War's bloodiest battles. This city has been left in ruins after the battle where over 6,000 people were killed.

Hi, I wanted to film something here and was just wondering how accessible is it? I have tried to find the tourist board online but couldn't. Is it possible to just walk in and have free reign of the place as some people on this thread have stated or has that changed? any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much!
