Territorio Dinópolis

Far from being just a leisure and cultural park located in the city of Teruel, Dinopolis is structured in a paleontological route in the country. Visitors will be able to go deeper and deeper in the world of dinosaurs thanks to this project consisting of five different theme centers among the province.

Each of these subsidiary centers, -settled in Albarracin, Rubielos de Mora, Castellote, Galve and Peñarroya de Tastavins– is in charge of a particular topic on paleontology. The real purpose is to help the tourists finding out the mysteries and showing them the paleontological discoveries in the province of Teruel:

We can see dinosaur footprints (called “ignitas”) or fossilized eggs and all kinds of flying reptiles, amphibians, fishes, mammal remains, and many others.
