Lobo, also known as El Lobo, Cabezo del Lobo, Cerro del Lobo and Mojón del Lobo, is a 630 m high mountain in the Campo de Belchite comarca, Zaragoza Province, Aragon, Spain, located about 3 km to the south of Belchite and 2 km east of Almonacid de la Cuba. This hill is named after the wolf (Spanish: lobo), for there were wolves in the area until the 19th century.
There was much military activity in and around this arid mountain both in 1809 during the Peninsular War and again in 1937-1938 at the height of the Spanish Civil War, during the Battle of Belchite (1937). The top of the hill commands an excellent view of the Campo de Belchite.
There is also a broadcasting station with a large antenna on top of the hill.
