This is Puente de La Reina, in the province of Navarra, which is located in Northern Spain. It's just south of Pamplona. Not a touristic town, yet simply amazing. The bridge is 1,000 years old!

Some pictures of other medieval spanish towns, we have a lot of them in Spain :lol: .
Peñalba de Santiago, Valle del Silencio (Silence Valley), El Bierzo, Leon, north of Spain, founded by eremits in the 8th century AC.
The gate of the church, a jewel of romanic mozarabe art. The church was constructed in the 10th century, and perfectly conserved in its original state, it is a national monument.
ruins of San Pedro de Montes monastery, 10th century AC
Near of the Silence Valley are located the Medulas, the biggest gold mines of the Roman Empire.

Another dosis :booze: of medieval spanish towns (PART 1): This time in the Alto Maestrazgo zone, in Aragon, in the limit of Teruel province with Castellon, in the North-East of Spain. All this towns were created in the XIth and XIIth centuries under the rule of the Temple and St. John of Jerusalem Knights. This is the "out of the beaten track" part of Spain that the mayority of foreign tourist never discover, and only the spanish tourist visit it. :ohno:.
Los Organos de Montoro, (The Pipe Organs of Montoro) Teruel, a natural monument:
Cañada de Benatanduz, Teruel:

A typical window in the town of Tronchon
The town of Mirambel
The townhall, between the windows, under the coat of arms exists a warning for the people that said in latin: HAC DOMUS ODIT NEQUITIAM, AMAT PACEM, PUNIT CRIMINA, CONSERVAT JURA, HONORAT PROBOS = This House hates wrongdoing, loves peace, punishes crimes, upholds the laws and honours the upright.

The province of Teruel has real Gems! It is one of my favourite provinces in Spain. Incredible Mudejar art and previous medieval constructions. Unique!
Thanks for the pictures. If someone has got pics of Albarracín, they should be posted.
