Daroca is a medieval city enclosed by a three and a half kilometre long wall dating back to the 13th and 14th centuries. The ruins of the castle rise up in one corner of the town. Just before the entrance gate a fountain with multi spigots.

This attraction was much much smaller than we thought but when we eventually realised we had found it we understood why it had been built - nice little bar nearby.

Daroca is a bit off the average tourist map, about an hour south of Zaragoza. But if you can go there. It is just so beautiful a great old town with lovely old churches and windy old streets to amble around. We were there as the town was preparing for a music festival and as we walked around the streets... 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 you visit do take walking shoes and hike around the murallas - if only for... More

You will probably whiz past Daroca on the brand new motorway from Valencia to Zaragoza. Shame, but you could take a little detour to Daroca and maybe the Monesteria de las Piedras, because there are many little gems in this area that are not generally visited by foreigners. Daroca is known as the red town because of the distinctive red... More

We wished we had planned our stay for more days. Amazing rich history. Don't miss out a walk around the town and the ancient walls. We got very good info in the tourist office. We started the walk around the walls and discover lots of interesting small sites: all the ancient wall gates, the towers, the old moorish castle. We... More
