Back to Albarracín
I've been away from Wales for almost 8 months and I've seen and experienced many things since then. One of my best discoveries was Albarracín in Lower Aragon, a town that looks like an Escher drawing. I decided to return for a few days with Rosa. We hiked around the region, through forests and over hills, visiting caves where prehistoric paintings can be found. The scenery is among the finest in Spain.
Lower Aragon is the most remote region of the country, with the smallest population and least number of villages, and is remarkable in many ways. I'm surprised (and relieved) that Albarracín isn't more widely known. It's a perfectly preserved mediæval city and at night was almost completely deserted. On the way back to Madrid we visited the Ciudad Encantada, an area of strangely shaped rocks, and Cuenca, another ancient city.
