Spain Guide Teruel

Spain Guide Teruel Teruel is a district in the Spanish province of Aragon. First mentioned in the 10th century it has a broad and diverse history that can clearly be seen through it’s buildings and architecture. As with Huesca, there is very little in the way of Holiday home ownership in this district. There is some agriculture but very little else in the way of industry. The area has something of a reputation for a fairly harsh climate producing some extremes in temperature, in the winter months; temperatures can drop to -20 degrees. Teruel is well known for producing some wonderful hams. But apart from this it can best be described as a very picturesque backwater.

If you avoid the extreme months of winter and summer, this province can be a real gem to visit. It is very beautiful and you can often walk for hours without seeing another person. However there are local pressure groups though who are seeking extra investment in the area to improve the infrastructure and as a result of this transport links to the area have already improved. However that said it remains the only provincial capital in Spain without a direct rail link to Madrid, may be this will come in the not to distant future.

Teruel is also the name of the capital city and it has a population in excess of 35000.. Fiestas in Teruel have also acquired a “must see” reputation and the “la Vaquyilla del Angel during the second week of July is most popular.Historically, this has been an area of great turmoil, there has been lots of fighting and the area was first captured by the Romans before being reclaimed for Spain.

It has many important buildings and some stunning architecture, hermitages and sites of historical interest. The area contains many fine examples of mudejar architecture and these monuments have been declared a world heritage site.by UNESCO
