Description


CASTLE OF THE ORDER OF CALATRAVA

Parador de Alcañiz ~ Castle dominating the Historic Village Built on the hill top called the Cumbre de Cerro Pui-Pinos, this 12th-13th century castle-convent became the seat of the Order of Calatrava in 1179. Dominating the landscape of the Maestrazgo, it conserves the keep, the bell tower-sacristy and the part reconverted into an 18th c. Aragonese palace. Gothic walls, plateresque tomb and baroque façade are inserted into an interior with soft, red and green coloured shades, adorned with Spanish wood in furniture and beams. It also features a peaceful garden. A good number of trips and activities related to adventure sports can be organized from the Parador. The comforting Aragonese cooking allows you to sample Alcañiz style eggs, `ternasco asado` (roast young lamb) and typical sweets: Alma and almond tarts.
