Morella Valencia


Recommended Posts

Mick - yes, been there a couple of times.


It's free, and quiet, but VERY basic, just a big gravel area...although we like that!

There's a water tap, but that's about it.

If there are more than another two MH's in the aire area I'll be surprised, it really is that quiet.


Couple of things to be aware of -


Morella town itself is WELL worth a visit.

It's an ancient hilltop, mediaeval town.

It's on a high hill overlooking the plains, so the views are brilliant.

Lots of little shops/bars etc. Very popular with Spanish day tripper coaches.

Makes a BIG and welcome change from concrete-jungle coastal Costa strip.

Steep streets, and lots of cobbles...no good for disabled I'm afraid.

Worth a day trip with an overnight stop, but after that you'll want to move on.


But the aire is some distance (maybe 1km?) into the countryside from the town, and the road between the two runs down quite steeply before running back up to the town walls/gate.


The town and the aire are VERY elevated. Don't know the exact altitude, but it's high up, and very exposed.

Great to visit/stay overnight if you like peace and quiet, but I'd suggest only between the months of May and end of September. It gets literally bloody freezing at that sort of inland altitude through the winter months.


Don't go/stay if the wind forecast is strong, as it's a high and exposed parking area.


But on a still, sunny day/evening, just lovely for peaceful chairs-out-and wine chilling.


Watch out for eagles riding the thermals in the hills if you are travelling around that area too. They really are MASSIVE.

While planing route have you got any good stops in the Zaragoza area





If you want to pay, then the Municipal campsite on the northern outskirts of Zaragoza is OK for an overnight.

Not expensive. Maybe 15 euros a night when we last stayed there (about 3 years ago now).

It;'s called "Camping ciudad de Zaragoza"

N: 41.637978

W: 0.942936


Just come off the North-South motorway onto the northern ring road, the N11a, and follow any signs that you see with the camping symbol on (as it's the only site in/around the city).

It's a fair way out of the heart of the city, but there's a regular bus service from outside the gate into the city centre. Zaragoza city centre is well worth a day trip, but probably not longer.




But we almost always wild-camp around Spain nowadays though, or use Aires, rather than campsites.


We have overnighted a couple of times in the tiny village of Villafranca del Campo, which is just off the A23 motorway, perhaps an hours drive south of Zaragoza

N: 40.69437

W: 1.34740

Just find a quiet place on the edge of that or any of the tiny hamlets that are a couple of kms away from the Motorway, and park up.


Remember that Parking overnight in a motorhome is legal anywhere in Spain where any other vehicles (eg cars) are allowed to park.

BUT "parking" means exactly that, just parking up. Sitting inside, eating or sleeping once the vehicle is parked, is totally OK. As is actually going into the local bar/shop and buying something, to help their local economy.


The moment you open your awning, get your chairs out, increase the footprint of your MH, use stabilisers or ramps, you are then under Spanish law "Camping" not just "parked", and can be moved on if the town byelaws forbid "camping" in that area.
