I first visited Albarracín back in 2004, when the rumors of a new bouldering meca near Teruel was emerging. The place was absolutely amazing and the soft red sandstone got me hooked! So I end up driving the 900km from Lisbon, again and again in many crazy boulder trips that follow…
As life goes on, I realized that I haven’t been there for nearly 7 years, so when my friend David told me they were going to Albarra for new years eve, it sounded like a good plan!
And what can I say… the magic still lives there!! 🙂

The limit is your imagination and self-control… 😀
The labyrinthique roads of Albarracin are stunning.

The walls made out of sandstone are beautiful.
From the fortress top there’s a great view of the village. Well worth the hike!
More architectonic details that delight me.
