I visited Belchite on a Sunday afternoon as a side trip from zaragoza, which was around 45 minutes drive. The town itself is beautiful with derelict crumbling buildings and churches. The guide was welcoming and professional and went to great lengths to amuse a screaming...More
We did a short ride around the town and took cafe and cañitas Donde Ernesto Bar. Great food with local flavors. Unfortunately due time was not possible see the old town but The driving and landscape views around were fantastic.
5 years ago I visited Belchite and I ended up quite touched with the visit. Back then, the old town was open to everyone to visit (with no control) and free. I thought that a guided tour would be much better. This year I went...More

Visiting Belchite is truly a sobering experience. It is on the scale of visiting the massive cemeteries of the First World War, and is no less impressive. The ruined town, left as a memorial to the sacrifices of the Spanish people (and volunteers) during the...More

Hi, we arrived at about 12 just when a tour was ending... the next one was at 4... I think just 2 a day. They were filming for the BBC during the first tour and I got to chat to the 2 camera people... they'd arranged it with the local tourist organisation in the town. However we didn't have time to wait so we drove to the back of the site near the cathedral and crawled under the fence. Because it was between 12:00 and 3, the Spanish siesta, the place was deserted and we looked over the whole site. It really is memorable (if you like that sort of thing) and for us a "must see". I suppose if you're using professional equipment crawling under the fence would not be an option, but the tourist office is near the church in the centre of the "new" town. Enjoy!
