About the Event
The Lovers of Teruel is considered one of the most beautiful love stories ever told.
The legend tells that in 13th Century there lived in Teruel. Isabel de Segura, daughter of a powerful family, and Juan Diego de Marcilla, a wealthy family offspring that would not inherit since he was not the first son.The two friends from childhood, fell madly in love for each other, but Diego’s lack of estate would prevent them from getting married. Due to their obstinacy, her father finally agreed a deal: Isabel would attend for Diego for five years so he would have time to make fortune abroad.
At the eve of the deathtime and having received no news from Diego, Isabel accepted to get married to a nobleman, Don Pedro de Azagra, Albarracin Lord .But fate decreed that while the city was celebrating the wedding, Diego would arrive to Teruel, happy and willing to marry his beloved, since he had earned fortune in war.He was told of his misfortune; his beloved had just married another one. Desperate and soul shattered, he went to Isabel’s house to ask for a kiss.She would not yield to his requests so as not to let down her husband. He insisted and insisted but she would not bend. And Diego fell, dead. Funerals were celebrated next day. Repented and brokenhearted, Isabel attended the funeral to give the previously refused kiss. Breaking all protocols and social rules, she put forward both families, approached the unanimated body of herbeloved and after kissing him, fell dead over Diego’s body.
During the trip in Teruel we will be able to see live reinacment of the story about Diego and Isabel, participate in the medieval marker and the festival. We will also have time to explore the city of Teruel and see towers of El Salvador, San Martín and San Pedro,the Lovers Mausoleum. Not everything in Teruel is from medieval time , some modern things you can see in Teruel are Torico Square and Óvalo Promenade.
The second town we will visit is Albarracin, a small town in the hills of east-central Spain, above a curve of the Guadalaviar River. Towering medieval walls, the Murallas de Albarracín, dominate the adjacent hillside. Albarracín is a unique place. Taking promenades along this town, walking along the city wall and stepping into its monuments is like traveling to Medieval ages.
