We recently returned from a long road trip in Spain. We visited a few beautiful old towns in the 3,400 miles covered, but Alberracin stood out as one of the most memorable places.

Very nice indeed.

I agree.
The mountainside in the background is absolutely fascinating - are we looking at an entire honeycomb of cave systems?
It would not suprise if their is a massive story in that.

I love the way the color of the buildings separates from the background even though the textures are similar.

Nice image!

I have been there a long time ago traveling on a bicycle through Spain. I remember the first thing i saw was the very red soil of the surroundings and then i came to the beautiful old town with its unique position in the landscape. As i remember the road continued though a tunnel underneath the town..
In the area a lot of geology students ...
Not a usual place to go for a tourist...I guess you also visited Cuenca?

Yes, kers - the tunnel is still there in the town.  We tend to think of ourselves more as "travellers" than tourists,   Grin   but we were amazed that there were so few visitors in such a fascinating town.  There are caves in the surrounding hills & the area is very popular with climbers.  No, we never got to Cuenca as we were only in the area for one night, staying at a place just outside of Pueblo del Valverde. The following day we took a run down to Xativa.

Another shot of Alberracin:

Thank you of reminding me to Albarracin and my trip in ... 1084 or so..

That is what i like about photos in general ; they help your memory to dig up so much things and little details you would otherwise not be able to reproduce...

like i remember taking a cafe con leche there and found it was very nice and strong... i like the Spanish coffee a lot..

this is one place i will surely visit again and take more time...
