Take the N-232 and then turn off on the C-222 to get to the town of Belchite, a war monument. Here a particularly difficult battle of the Spanish Civil War (1936-39) was fought. In August 1937 the Republican Army began an offensive attack on Belchite, which had been taken by Franco's troops. There was a siege and the village was bombed and destroyed. The ruins that still stand remind us of the consequences of war. One kilometre away, the new Belchite was built. Old Belchite remained as a ghost of destruction, which is quite sad to walk through, crossing the old Calle Mayor and reflecting on the war. Several films have been filmed amongst the ruins. The most recent was Baron von Munchhausen. You can get here by coach with Autobuses ABASA, Calle Lérida 3.
