Barranco de la Tejera, loma de la Cuna, Montalbán, Teruel, Aragón, España

Entre Montalbán y Castel de Cabra, a la izquierda de la carretera que une estas poblaciones y en dirección a la última, podemos encontrar varios barrancos pertenecientes a la formación Utrillas donde aparecen abundantes cristales de yeso.
El más conocido de los barrancos es el situado al noroeste de una antigua tejera abandonada. Esta tejera se observa desde la carretera a unos 3km de Montalbán, destacando para su mejor localización la antigua chimenea que destaca entre la arboleda.

Among Montalban and Castel de Cabra, to the left of the road between these villages and towards the latter, we find several ravines in the "Utrillas" formation levels, where gypsum crystals are abundant.
The best known of the cliffs is located north-west of an abandoned old tilery. This tilery and his high chimney can be viewed from the road, about 3 km from Montalban, highlighting the location for the old chimney, that stands out among the trees.
