On my return from Albarracin I decided on stopping by Daroca to have a look before heading back to Zaragoza. And it was a decision I didn't regret! The town has many physical reminders of its' ancient history. It was later in the day so I didn't have the time to walk the walls as others have suggested but I did walk the Calle Mayor (the town's main street) from one gate to another, Puerta Alta to Puerta Baja. Of particular note is "La Fuente de los Veinte Canos" a fountain with 20 spigots just outside of the town's lower gate or Puerta Baja. I also walked up to a shrine (La Ermita de Nazaret) just below the castle to get some nice views over the town. The town's tiny Jewish quarter was also worth checking out. It was nice to see outside tables filling up as evening approached proving that the town still has a certain vibrancy. I've discovered that Aragon has a plethora of interesting towns worth visiting, places like Albarracin, Calatayud, Alcaniz,etc. and Daroca should be on the top of that list. I used Zaragoza as a base to visit some of these towns and look forward to returning some day to revisit some and also visit new ones.

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 concert which was very entertaining and we were made to feel very welcome.

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 also more than 3km of medieval walls. Some of the walls have deteriorated but the rest along with their 114 towers and fortified gates remain an impressive sight. The climb and wall walk is well worth the effort. The 14th century lower gate used to be a drain for the river. To the right of the gate is a fountain and many spouts but on this visit it was dry. The 16th century High gate is decorated with the coat of arms of Carlos I.

We made a detour on our way to Toledo. It added about an hour to the overall trip, not counting the two hours we spent walking around the village on a Sunday morning. And “walking around” is the correct term since we followed the walk that follows the Moorish walls that once circled the village. The walk was 2.5 miles and took about 70 minutes. It was not easy! The Garmin says we had 54 floors climbed, and 55 declined, but we felt it was well worth the effort. The path is mostly well marked, with many descriptive signs, and it offers some great views.

Daroca is a medieval city enclosed by a three and a half kilometre long wall dating back to the 13th and 14th centuries. The ruins of the castle rise up in one corner of the town. Just before the entrance gate a fountain with multi spigots.
