La Iglesuela del Cid (Teruel)


What you can see and do in La Iglesuela del Cid

La Iglesuela del Cid is a singular town, largely owing to the reddish colour of its stones and the ‘drystone walling’ technique, designated as Intangible World Heritage. This is an ancient building tradition that, to the travellers’ eyes, creates a landscape with lines of stone walls on different levels.

The castle of La Iglesuela disappeared in the 14th century, but part of the keep, called Tower of Los Nublos (14th century) have been conserved. Next to it, or rather attached to it, because they form a single structure, is the Town Hall market and the church of La Purificación, a Baroque building built over a previous Gothic church.

A walk around the streets of the town will take us to some mansions and large houses: the Palace of the Matutano-Daudén (18th century), Agramunt, etc. The town is a historical-artistic site and is worthy of an unhurried stroll.

Very near the town, 3km away, the Sanctuary of the Virgin of El Cid was apparently built over a Roman villa in beautiful scenery.
