Things to Do
There's a tradition to do during the festivities in July, that is throwing meringue to the town hall's door. At Easter the parades of drummers in full Easter garb are well worth a look. The Mausoleum of The Lovers of Teruel (Los Amantes) is just off the main square.
Teruel jamon serrano, you can purchase it in some deli shops in the city center. It's awesome. Do not purchase any "typical bakery", as it may not be made on the premises.
The best places are 'asadores' and 'rokelin' (there are several ones), anything else is fancy expensive food, you'll be hungry after eating in those places.
There isn't a typical drink, but you can find microbrews in some bakeries.
Some pubs in the party zone (called simply "la zona") are truly troll nests, don't go there.
If you're driving, the Parador is a good choice.
