During our recent stay in Valencia, our friends took us on a trip-within-a-trip to the beautiful town of Teruel. I fell in love at first sight. Many buildings in Teruel have UNESCO World Heritage Site status, with some dating from the 12th Century.Only 80 miles inland from Valencia, Teruel has enough of interest to warrant at least an overnight stay (we stayed 2 nights). Locals apparently lament their feeling of being cut-off from the rest of Spain, but I think that’s part of its charm; and in truth, a frequent and cheap rail service connects it to the rest of Spain at regular intervals.

Your photos really capture the atmosphere of the town. I loved that area, in fact I think I preferred Valencia to Barcelona. You certainly had a very busy summer! I hope back to school is going ok x
Amazing architecture in these old buildings. I think I’ve said before, it amazes me that such things were built without all the modern technology & yet they stand tall, proud & in excellent shape & yet today’s roads crumble after one season … wonderful blend of the different cultures/religions reflected in the details. I looked Teruel up on a map to see where it was situated – the province of Aragon … ah I remember learning something about Ferdinand of Aragon as Catherine of Aragon’s Father …
Love the pictures really gives you a wonderful feeling of the town
