In 1937, during the Spanish Civil War, the town of Belchite (Aragon) was destroyed in a fierce battle between loyalist Spanish Republican forces and General Franco's rebel forces. A new town was built later near the ruins while the old Belchite was abandoned. If you like shooting ghost towns this is the place to go in Spain.

Weather dominated my recent trip to Madrid: unusual Arctic weather blanketed half of Spain with snow and producing freezing temperatures.
