Walked around the site. Impressive remains of the Spanish Civil War. The site is now surrounded by a fence. To visit you need to take a guided tour, tickets at the tourist agency.

To reach Belchite, the access from the west is down some of the roughest roads in Spain, but the drive was well worth it. Fortunately, we arrived only a few minutes before the last tour of the day, otherwise the drive would have been pointless as there is little else to see. There was nothing to indicate where tickets could... More

We stopped in Belchite on our trip through Spain, it is difficult to take it all in as my Spanish is not perfect and the English Audio guides did not work ( the only reason why this does not get a five). The battle of Belchite was one of the fiercest fought on the Aragon front and the ruined town... More

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
