Watch our adventure here
2 hours south east of Burgos we stopped at a campsite near Soria. Camping Fuente de la Teja was all that we needed. Clean, fresh toilets and showers and a huge, lovely swimming pool for the boys to play in.
We arrived with the sun beating down, but really high humidity. After a couple of hours (and just as dinner was cooking) the rain caught us out! Good grief, the clouds came in fast, and the rain even faster. After an early night, we were back on the road again heading south east.
Our next stop was Camping Albarracin. Nestled in the hills at the edge of Albarracin, the campsite features 2 tiers of pitches. The top tier was home to large open pitches, fabulous for the length of our van, but awful for shade. Steve managed to shoe horn us on to a smaller, but shadier pitch on the lower level. Soon after arriving we headed down to the municipal swimming pool to cool down and play.
Municipal Swimming pools are owned an operated by the local authority. This one was about 5 minutes from our site down a winding road. For the bargain price of €1 per person we joined locals in a lovely large pool and enjoyed the last of the days sunshine.
The rest of the campsite was fairly standard, with good clean facilities and a nice looking bar. Besides being conveniently positioned for our trip, Albarracin is also an incredibly beautiful town. It's overlooked and protected by medieval walls and right at the top is a 10th Century Tower. There are also ruins of an alcazar, which is a Moorish castle, and the 16th-century Catedral del Salvador features a bell tower built on the remains of a Romansque temple.
Albarracin is a wonderful town to walk around, but even more stunning when captured by drone!
