One of the highest towns in Spain ‘traps’ the Valencians

Valdelinares is a town belonging to the Gúdar-Javalambre region, in the province of Teruel, which is located at an altitude of 1,695 meters, which makes it one of the highest towns in Spain. It is only surpassed by Pradollano, a district in the municipality of Monachil (Granada), as the highest inhabited point in Spain, at 2,078 meters above sea level.

One of the biggest attractions of this town, perfect for those who like to enjoy the mountains and do some sport, is the Aramón Valdelinares ski resort. This is how the Aragon Tourism website shows it, where they indicate that it is the “favorite space for Valencians” to enjoy the snow given its proximity: “Just 1 hour and 30 minutes from Valencia”.

Valdelinares, as highlighted by the media infobae, is characterized by hosting a unique species of pine. In fact, its name in Latin, Val de Lignare means Valley between pine forests. It is the Moorish pine, a botanical jewel that is given thanks to the fact that it has all the necessary conditions for it. It is characteristic of high mountain regions of Europe such as the Alps, the Carpathians or the Pyrenees.

In addition, the same media has highlighted that “the town is characterized by its picturesque town center.” Among the corners to visit, he has indicated the Parish Church of Nuestra Señora de las Nieves and the Hermitage of Nuestra Señora de Loreto, both from the 18th century.

Added to this architectural heritage is the natural environment, which offers a multitude of attractions beyond the ski resort. Among these, the Las Lavaderas waterfall trail stands out, one of the most popular.
