We arrived at this town as an overnight stop with our motorhome. What a beautiful place and an unexpected sight was a festival taking place. It appeared to be celebrating children and the whole township had turned out. That evening there was a free folk...More

The Arabs gave it the name Calat-Darawca (862), and possessed it for 400 years, until Alfonso the Battler conquered it in 1120, and in 1141 issued a primitive legal code, which is unknown today. Daroca has a lovely medieval centre with lots of historic buildings...More

It is worth to stop a while in this old town in the centre of a valley sorrounded by hills. Midle age walls, hills and old houses with the same colour....red-brown.

You will probably whiz past Daroca on the brand new motorway from Valencia to Zaragoza. Shame, but you could take a little detour to Daroca and maybe the Monesteria de las Piedras, because there are many little gems in this area that are not generally...More
