Catedral de Santa María de Mediavilla
Teruel Cathedral was founded as a Romanesque church to which a Mudéljar tower was added in the 13th century. Together with other churches in the town and in the province of Zaragoza, it has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1986.
La Escalinata del Óvalo
This grand staircase, connecting the Paseo del Óvalo to the train station, is a masterpiece of neo-Mudéjar monumenta architecture redolent of Seville’s Plaza de España. Built 1920, it was painstakingly restored in the early 21st century. There’s a lift back up to the Paseo. When you go down, you can see a restored ancient building, which was a convent. Nowadays it is occupied by the Head Office of Government of Aragón in Teruel.
Torre de San Martín
The tower was built between in 1315 and 1316. Like other structures in Teruel, it is a gate-tower decorated with ceramic glaze. The tower takes its names from the annexed church of St. Martin, dating to the Baroque period.
Castillo Musulmán De Albarracín
Sitting majestically above the city on top of a jutting hill, the Albarracín castle dominates the skyline. During the last 10 years or so the lower grounds of the castle have been excavated as it was covered in farmland.
Torre del Andador
A high point for defence of the town of Albarracín, this tower sits on the edge of a small cliff. The Muslim watchtower was built in the 10th century and the surrounding walls were added later to protect the town more.
