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.

A sad, strange monument to the reality of war. Visits aren't possible without a guide for good reason, Belchite is truly a ruined village, side by side with the modern village. Fuentetodos, Goya's birthplace is about 15 km down the road from Belchite and is also worth the visit

A truly amazing place. We arrived at about 14:00 (siesta time!) and didn't have time to wait for the official tour at 16:00 so we drove to the other side of the site and crawled under the fence. The ruins of the old town are as they were left after being destroyed in 1937 in the Spanish Civil War. It... More

A haunting, but very interesting, bombed-out town that has been preserved to display the horrors of war. Very unusual.

An amazing walk back in time. Walking around Belchite was a chilling and moving experience. One of the Spanish Civil War's bloodiest battles. This city has been left in ruins after the battle where over 6,000 people were killed.

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
