Ateca is an important site in the Jalón river valley, wich it’s revealed by the big urban area sprawling and because of the magnitude that we see in the overwhelming moorish towers, the village pointing towards the sky. The past influence of the moorish urbanism is obvious when you take a walk across the streets and the alleys. The legacy of the muslims left an important numbers of words in relation with the mastering of waters, and they taught us to take advantage of the posibilities of irrigation in a land wich is in fact in general quite dry. The altitude is about 600 meters and has a population of 2061 inhabitants.
