The Casa del Traductor, Translator's House, is located in the Aragon town of Tarazona, which during the Middle Ages, along with Toledo, was an important centre for the translation of texts from Arabic to Latin.
Tarazona is the county town of Moncayo and is situated in the central valley of the River Queiles, 86 kilometres from Zaragoza. The town is at the crossroads of a number of routes linking the Spanish regions of Castilla León, La Rioja, Navarra and Aragon. There are11,000 inhabitants.
The town's architecture is what makes Tarazona so special. It has magnificent Mudejar constructions, as well as buildings from the 16th, 17th and 18th Centuries. The town provides the perfect complement to a fascinating local area: it is close to the Moncayo mountain range, declared a Natural Park in 1978; as well as the Cistercian Veruela Abbey, located in an idyllic natural setting; and many villages in the area also have Mudejar architecture.
