Albarracín is known as the most beautiful village in Spain. In fact, this medieval village has an amazing city wall around its perimeter and its red houses make Albarracín look awesome.
The most curious characteristic of Albarracín is its narrow streets. As a medieval city that needed to be defended, all the village was built inside the walls. The space inside the wall wasn’t very wide, so the streets are very narrow and the houses are wider on the top floors than in the low levels.
Albarracín is surrounded by rodeno rocks that have a characteristic red color. The houses of Albarracín are made of a material composed of rodeno, so their facades are also red.
If you visit Albarracín you can look up to their balcony and the bottom of their roofs, because they are made of forging and wood. Some doorknockers look like animals or mythological creatures.
