Sierra de Albarracín Comarca is a comarca in Aragon, Spain. It is located in the Iberian System, in an area formerly known locally as Tierra de Albarracín, roughly corresponding to the ancient Señorío de Albarracín feudal manor.[1] Its capital is Albarracín, a picturesque town surrounded by stony hills that was declared Monumento Nacional in 1961.[2]

This mountainous comarca is named after the Sierra de Albarracín, the main mountain range in this area of the Iberian System,[3] but the comarca includes other mountain ranges as well, foremost of which are the Montes Universales.
