We didn't visit this village and really wish we could have. We checked on the internet before our visit for tour companies but couldn't find any. We asked at our hotel about visiting - we were given bus times but they were impractical, very early to get there and not really one to get back! We asked and looked for... More

Have given this an average score but only because we could not see it. Public transport abysmal. If we had got ourselves to the bus station a bus left at 7.30 A.M. That was the only one we could use apart from one which left before the only return bus. We would also have liked to go to Belchite but... More

Like the war graves of Europe this is a MUST visit (I would not call it an attraction) as that belittles the people that perished here. I suggest it best to visit early in the morning (before the tour buses) just stand,observe, listen and consider, you will find it very sobering. It is a credit that this small town has... More

Fascinating place to visit, even if it left me feeling somber afterwards. I think it is a very poignant place that evokes strong personal feelings about the aftermath of a war if that scale. The visitor centre, and the whole attraction would benefit from better signposting and advertisement. Information about opening times was scarce. As we were a British group... More

Belchite itself is a must for anyone interested in Spain's civil conflict or the 36 year regime that followed. On top of that it is a fascinating place to reflect on present-day interactions with the past (graffiti on the walls are a physical marker of the more covert ideological divisions that mark contemporary Spaniards' historical consciousness). You are no longer... More

My wife and I travelled to Belchite by car from Hotel Consolacion in Monroyo. The drive is straightforward and takesyou past some wonderful scenery and through some lovely little towns. The guided tour was in Spanish, but we were given an ipod with an English commentary. As we entered the gates to the old city we were instantly in another... More

Apparently it used to be possible to wander around this wrecked town for free, although now it costs around 6 euro a head to have a guided tour. As the weather was very bad when we arrived, we decided that a lengthy tour was not what we wanted, but instead took a quick wander down the road and around the... More

This is one of Franco's legacies of civil war: a small town that was destroyed in late 30's in the fight between Franco's army and his foes. The town was completely destroyed and was left as a reminder to those rebelling against the regime. A memorable walk through the town and you may even be able to hear a quire... More

I will be coming to Belchite via automobile from Zaragosa. Is there dedicated parking space for visiting the ruins?

Quite eerie walking amongst these ruins but this town was captured by the legitimate government, retaken by the fascists and Wally Tapsell of the British Battalion was killed here. There is still a shell lodged half way up the tower of St Augustine's Church.
