Together with other rural areas in Spain and other European countries, the provinces of Teruel and Castellón have interesting examples of dry stone constructions, art inscribed on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO in 2018.

The art of dry stone walling concerns the knowhow related to making stone constructions by stacking stones upon each other, without using any other materials except sometimes dry soil. Such structures testify to the methods and practices used by people from prehistory to today to organize their living and working space by optimizing local natural and human resources. Dry stone structures are always made in perfect harmony with the environment and the technique exemplifies a harmonious relationship between human beings and nature.

Kilometres of dry-stone walls and huts can be viewed in places like Mosqueruela in the Maestrazgo in Teruel. They are another attraction in this town, which invites travellers to follow several routes where they can learn about these structures at first hand.
