A small mountain village in the north-east of Spain with Celtic, Roman, Arabic, Christian and Visigoth influences, and now a proposed World Heritage Site.
Opinions are split when it comes to the origins of this village’s name. Some believe it comes from “Aben Razin” a surname of Arabic origin. Others claim it derives from the combination of the Celtic word for mountain, “alb” and vineyard or grape, “ragin”.
It’s full of interesting sites, a castle, a cathedral and a fortified wall up on the hill (to name only a few). I zipped these pretty quickly; I spent my time wandering around the backstreets. It here where you’ll come across the “Casa de la Julianeta”, a curiously constructed house, emblematic of the village’s architecture.
I only spent a few precious hours here one sunny November afternoon, but I’m definitely going back.

Every summer, my soul screams for a lazy, hot day back at my parents' home, for some good food, relaxation, and catching up with childhood friends. This year is no different, so I went back down to my small hometown in the very northeast of Belgium to enjoy a perfect laid back day doing nothing and everything. And of course, I brought my analogue cameras along to eternalize all of these small but grand moments in life.
When a group of Viennese students stumbled upon the Lomo LC-A a couple of decades back, they were astounded with the images the small enigmatic Russian camera could create. The photos were bathed in saturated hues and cloaked in lovely vignettes – unlike anything they had ever seen.
