The Backstreets of Albarracín Teruel, Spain

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.

    Muchas gracias chicos. Pero siento comunicaros que no está ni en Albacete, ni en Andalucia, sino en ARAGÓN! Jjajajajajaja/// Thanks very much guys. But, I'm afraid it's not in Albacete or Andalusia. It's in ARAGON! hahahaha...
