Teruel is the capital city of Teruel province in Aragon. It is noted for its harsh climate, its jamón serrano (cured ham), its pottery, its surrounding archaeological sites, rock outcrops containing some of the oldest dinosaur remains of the Iberian Peninsula, and its famous events. Teruel is regarded as the "town of mudéjar" (Moorish-influenced architecture) due to numerous buildings designed in this style. All of them are comprised in the Mudéjar Architecture of Aragon which is a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO.

Understand

In 2018, it had a population of about 36,000 people.

Teruel's remote and mountainous location 915 metres (3,002 feet) above sea level and its low population has led to relative isolation within Spain. A campaign group with the slogan Teruel existe ("Teruel exists") was founded in 1999 to press for greater recognition and investment in the town and the province. Due in part to the campaign, transport connections to Teruel are being greatly improved with the construction of a motorway between Zaragoza and Sagunto, large parts of which are now open. However, Teruel remains the only provincial capital in peninsular Spain without a direct railway link to the capital, Madrid.

Mudéjar architecture

Teruel is the site of some of the most impressive Mudéjar architecture in all Spain, which, with other Mudéjar structures in Aragón, are collectively inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

  • Catedral de Santa María de Teruel Unesco Icon(Teruel Cathedral), +34 978 618016. Winter: M-Sa 11:00-14:00 16:00-19:00; summer: M-Sa 11:00-14:00 16:00-20:00. Impressive from outside but rather a mixture of styles. The bell tower, built 1257-1258, is considered to be one of the best-preserved Mudéjar towers in Spain. Also notable is the ornate wooden ceiling, dating from the early 14th century. Wikipedia Icon (updated Sep 2016)
  • Torre de la Iglesia de San Salvador Unesco Icon(Tower of the Church of San Salvador), C/ El Salvador, 5, +34 978 602061.

Believed to date from the early 14th century, this very finely-decorated Mudéjar tower is covered with intricate tile work. Structurally it resembles a typical Almohad minaret, with a plain tower placed within the more elaborate outer tower, and a staircase usually open between them. The adjoining Church of San Salvador de los Reyes dates to the late 17th century, and is considered to be the best example of Baroque architecture in Teruel province. Especially noteworthy in the main altarpiece is the central figure El Cristo del Salvador, which was carved in the 13th century. €2.50 (adults), €2 (concessions). Wikipedia Icon (updated Sep 2016)
  • Torre de San Martín Unesco Icon. This Mudéjar gate-tower was built between 1315 and 1316, and partly restored in 1550. It is also decorated with glazed tilework, and is associated with the nearby church of St. Martin (built during the Baroque period). The tower can be viewed only from the exterior.

  • Iglesia de San Pedro Unesco Icon(San Pedro Church), C/ Matías Abad, s/n, +34 978 618398. Daily 10:00-14:00 16:00-20:00. A 14th-century Romanesque-Mudéjar church, the interior of which is completely covered with designed bricks and tiles.
