 Here is our pick of top 5 most beautiful villages of Spain. 

Albarracin 
           
Albarracin, 38km west of Teruel, is one of Spain's most lovely towns, well known for its half-timbered houses with gloomy pink frontages, reminiscent of southern Italy. It is quite challenging to reach this place, however all the effort which you make, will be justified once you breathe in the otherworldly breeze here, and feel the time stopping by. Battered fortified walls ascend the encompassing inclines and the town's boulevards seem like a labyrinth.

Puebla de Sanabria

Near to the Portuguese border, this dazzling town is a tangle of medieval back streets that unfold around a fifteenth century palace and stream down the slope. This is one of Spain's loveliest villas and its well worth halting overnight, the calm cobblestones paths make it feel like you've traveled back to centuries.

Cadaques

A whitewashed town around a rough cove, Cadaques’ narrow, rugged roads is ideal for meandering. The famous town and its nearby territories have an unique enchantment – a combination of wind, ocean, light and rock – that isn't diluted even by the droves of summer tourists.

Ainsa

The excellent hilltop town of medieval Ainsa, is one of Aragon's jewels, an incredible town chopped out of uneven stone. From its peak, you'll get tantalizing panoramas of the mountains, especially the giant rock bastion of La Pena Montanesa.

Daroca      
                                                                                                                   
Daroca, a lethargic medieval town, was once an Islamic seat and, later, a Christian post town in the early medieval wars against Castilla. Its decently saved old quarter is loaded down historical references and the disintegrating old city walls surround the peaks; the walls once gloated more than hundred military towers.
