UNESCO World Heritage Medieval Village & Spain’s Own Romeo and Juliet
Just an hour and a half North West of Valencia is the UNESCO site of the medieval walled village, Albarracin. On the way there, we stop in the small provincial capital of Teruel for panoramic, cliff-top views.
We will wander the medieval streets and see the famed ‘Mausoleum of the Lovers’, dedicated to the real-life story of Spain’s Romeo and Juliet from the 13th century. The museum is attached to a unique Mudejar style church with breathtaking views of the town below.
We will continue from Teruel to Albarracin, where we climb to this protected town to visit its Moorish castle and several other sites of cultural interest. We will then have lunch at the Spanish meal time, 2:00 pm, at a local restaurant.
Depending your customized itinerary based on your interests, we can either walk the ramparts or take a short hike through one of the many routes dedicated to pre-historic cave art, painted by the ancient Iberians around 1200 BC.
Please keep in mind that this is an extensive, full-day experience, and as such, we are unable to accommodate shore tours or excursions with strict return times prior to 7:00 pm. However, we would be happy to customize another shore excursion to fit your timing and interests. Feel free to visit our Shore Tour Page or Contact Us for more information about different shore tour options.
*Please note that this tour includes rigorous walking along dirt paths and up steep hills and mountainsides. Please let us know if you have mobility issues, and we would be happy to customize your tour to fit your needs.
