Tourism in Rubielos de Mora (Teruel), Spain. Europa Nostra Award. CittaSlow.


Rubielos de Mora is one of the most attractive towns in Teruel, situated on the right bank of the river Rubielos, belongs to the region of Gúdar-Javalambre. It is an urban-planning and architectural gem which has a collection of traditional buildings decorated with excellent grilles, while its deservedly-famous workshops are still in existence today. In fact, it was awarded the “Europa Nostra” award in 1983, in recognition of the restoration work carried out by the residents.




It has many ecclesiastical monuments, such as: the former Collegiate church of Santa María la Mayor (17th century) which houses a fine reredos of the Life of the Virgin, work of the so-called Maestro of Rubielos; the Augustinian convent (16th-18th centuries) and the Carmelite convent (17th century); and four hermitages from the 15th to the 18th centuries.


Rubielos de Mora is also one of six Spanish municipalities approved for membership by Cittaslow international. This village invites to rest and lose touch with routine in which we are sometimes immersed, offering a marvellous gastronomy, beautiful landscapes and an exciting cultural tour.
