Participants will visit remarkable places near Teruel, providing the opportunity to explore Spanish culture and historic sites, all while practicing and expanding your Spanish vocabulary.
The City of Arts and Sciences, Valencia
We begin with a tour of the City of Arts & Sciences, Santiago Calatrava’s futuristic architectural masterpiece. We first explore all the buildings at ground level, learning the fascinating stories behind the architectural details accompanied by a local guide.
We then go up to the private apartment of our chef where we will enjoy a specially prepared tasting menu showcasing the best of Valencian gastronomy.
You must be able to climb steep hills in order to visit this town, but it is well worth the effort. The pink-hued medieval houses, and the twisting, narrow streets of Albarracín are like nowhere else in Spain.
We aim to create personal experiences where we can truly get to know our guests, as they experience Albarracín from a local’s perspective.
Hike by Guadalaviar River and Calomarde River
We will enjoy two hikes by rivers. One of them starting from San Blas, a small village near Teruel and finishing in the natural Reservoir del Arquillo, we will enjoy this 5km hike perfect for all. You will be able to take in its breathtaking views and the fauna fron the area, including eagles and vultures, among others. Enjoy the picture perfect views of the river and walking over the many exciting bridges and walkways.
Albarracin’s mountains hide beautiful landscapes and corners, beyond the city of Albarracín, which, without a doubt, is its main tourist attraction. On this occasion, we will visit Calomarde, hiking to the Barranco de la Hoz, which has been recently refurbished, and which runs through the Blanco Canyon’s river, a tributary of the Guadalaviar. Outside the route, but very close, we will also visit the breathtaking Batida de Calomarde waterfall.
The Peracense castle is one the most beautiful and impressive in Aragón. It was built on the top of a rock in the 13th century to defend the border. It was a feudal castle, prison, and an important fortress.
Admire how the rock melts with the castle and the way the castle camouflages among the land, as most buildings in this village it was built with rodent stone, with a peculiar intense red color.
Bohílgues River, in the Charming Ademuz
The crystal clear Bohílgues river, perfect for swimming at many astonishing spots, has a beautiful river route full of vegetation and native fauna dotted with natural pools, waterfalls, and small lakes. A hike surrounded by nature that combines scenic and historical heritage through the flour mills that are still standing, several of them dating from the Islamic era.
