The Arabs gave it the name Calat-Darawca (862), and possessed it for 400 years, until Alfonso the Battler conquered it in 1120, and in 1141 issued a primitive legal code, which is unknown today. Daroca has a lovely medieval centre with lots of historic buildings...More

We made a detour on our way to Toledo. It added about an hour to the overall trip, not counting the two hours we spent walking around the village on a Sunday morning. And “walking around” is the correct term since we followed the walk...More

It is worth to stop a while in this old town in the centre of a valley sorrounded by hills. Midle age walls, hills and old houses with the same colour....red-brown.

Going back after twenty years or so was simply a delight. As well as fantastic churches, little patios and bars the sympathetic restoration of the town and the city walls provided an enchanting way to really sense the history and beauty of this place. If...More
