    Some say Albarracin is Spain’s most beautiful village. You’ll feel as if you’ve been transported directly to the Middle Ages in this sleepy little town that lies two hours from Valencia at an elevation of nearly 4,000 feet above sea level. Unspoiled by modernization, its old town is nestled against canyon walls, with bright and colorful church bell towers, creating a magnificent contrast with the golden-hued buildings.

    Junto con la Julianeta, quizá el punto más significativo de la ciudad. Se divisa desde el mirador de la catedral (otra típica foto) y las vistas de la ciudad desde ella, sobre todo al atardecer son espectaculares. La subida es muy asumible por todas las edades y merece muy mucho la pena. El único "pero" que sufras algo de vértigo, hay partes que infunden un poco de respeto pero no es nada grave.

    Si visitas Albarracín, no deberías perderte hacer un recorrido por sus murallas. Desde el mirador que hay junto al palacio episcopal se ven en su totalidad, y además se aprecia el sendero que sube hasta ellas. Mejor subir cuando no haga demasiado calor, aunque merece la pena hacer esta pequeña ruta y llegar caminando hasta la torre del Andador, una de las que en su día protegían la ciudad.

    Magnifica fortaleza con extraordinarias vistas de la preciosa ciudad de Albarracín. La subida es bastante accesible y merece la pena el pequeño esfuerzo.

    Las murallas y el conjunto de Albarracin ofrecen al viajero un espectáculo inigualable. Subir al Andador, entrar en su castillo/Alcazaba, bordear las murallas por el paseo de ronda, atravesar sus portales y adivinar su contorno desde cualquier altura es magnífico. VOLVERÉ

    Stunning views especially if you have a good head for heights. The walls are extensive & easy to access. Definitely worth the effort to get up there.

    Hard to miss yet not easily reached. Super impressive. Rained all day so the climb was slippery. Wear decent walking shoes because some areas are more rugged and footing can be dicey.

    The hike is steep, but not hard. (We saw women in wedge heels and city flats make it to the top! NOT recommended, just saying...). You are rewarded with great views of the city and mountains. And if you're a fan if medieval walls, these are intact and long. Well worth it.

    These beautiful walls run up the top of the mountain range above the beautiful city that you will never forget. I personally will never ever see the town is beautiful best. One of the best towns in Spain. Make sure you visit and make sure you hike up the walls. Just wondering the early-morning is the lights coming over the mountain and you will feel like you were in heaven.

    Well worth the walk and completely free. Do keep a close eye on children though. I think this is is probably one of the most remarkable sites of the town.

    As we were staying in our caravan in the nearby camping site, one could not help but notice how these magnificent walls totally dominate the small town. I decided not to climb up 😳 Looking at other folks reviews I am rather glad I opted out of the climb!! A beautiful & intriguing little town, seemingly in the 'middle of nowhere' If You are coming to the area, & you are reasonably fit & healthy, then come, & take the challenge & climb!!! 😀

    The walls are iconic and dynamic but be warned, the path up to them, although not long, is loose shale, so suitable footwear should be worn and the walls are unprotected and not particularly safe to walk on, in fact I identified the risk of accident or even injury to be quite high, not recommended for the elderly, infirm or children.

    Not as hard as it looks at first, this walk/hike worth all the effort, as when you get up you are rewarded with beautiful views of the town and its surroundings.

    A short walk from the city centre. Be prepared to take warm clothes, we went in January and were absolutely freezing. Open space invites a lot of wind :)

    This small town is a treasure! Its small, narrow alleys and houses built almost on top of each other forms a great place to visit. The fortress that howers above the town should also be visited. It makes several excellent viewpoints and small balancing and climbing challenges. Albarracin also houses many good restaurants well hidden in its small allays. Hikes and walkes can also be made in the nature parks nearby, and also offer a great experience by itself. Not to forget to mention the bouldering in the woods of Albarracin which certainly provides top quality sand stone boulders, and should be considered one of the best destinations in europe.

    It looks tougher than it is, walking around these walls, but if you pace yourself and stop to take photos, you will not be as winded. There are some great views on top. How safe these walls must have made the inhabitants of this cozy little community feel.

    If you are in Albarracin, you have to walk up to this wall. Not a difficult walk and take your time to enjoy the surrounding views. The view of the village is amazing from the wall, do not forget to bring your camera or smart phone.

    While it is a climb, walking with up the hill onto the walls is worth it. The view of the city from the top is breathtaking. Anyone visiting the city must make the trek!

    The walls are amazing. Super views of the town below and the surrounding countryside. The walk up is a lot easier than it looks. The snaking path has an easy gradient and at one point even goes through the wall. Explore the castle at the top. Imagine you are a defender with an enemy army approaching! Fascinating.

    It's a beautiful wall. Visible from almost anywhere in Albarracin, it is not a difficult wall to access. The walk up is easy to manage. Anyone with decent fitness can manage this trek. When you get to the apex, you'll get a fantastic view of the valley behind Albarracin! The 'new' town is well below the the turret. And all around you is a great vista of the mountains. It was May and still chilly out but invigorating. Well worth the walk.
