Albarracin (near Teruel), July 2001
Albarracin is a wonderful medieval town with very narrow streets and an impressive wall snaking up the hillside.

There is a good campsite there (very clean ) and right next to the municipal swimming pool.

Nearby are the paeleolithic cave paintings, amazing river gorges and great views.

Cave paintings, this natural park has many, somewhat faded, paintings - bit what do you expect after 6000 years!  There are also some spectacular views.
Fantastic views ('miradores') across the plain from the heights above Alabarrin.
Although we visited in mid July it was  hot during the day (30c+) but cool at night. Sleeping bags were needed.

Mind you it was exceptionally unusual weather with hailstones forecast for Teruel and snow above 2000m in  Northern Spain. Global warming and the eruption of Mount Etna were blamed!
