House in Rubielos de Mora / Ramón Esteve Estudio

December 12, 2018 Pilar Caballero 0

Rubielos de Mora, “the Gate of Aragón”, is located in the southern area of the county of Gudar-Javalambre. When you visit it you understand why it was designated a place of historical and artistic interest in 1980, it received the Europa Nostra Award in 1983 and it was selected one of the “Most Beautiful Villages in Spain” in 2013.
Vernacular architecture in Rubielos displays eaves, iron ttings, woodwork and stonework, providing an old time picture frozen in time. That’s why Rubielos de Mora won’t let you remain unmoved, because the spirit of its poetry, carved in stone and forged in iron, will for ever ask you to come back.
