Return to the Paradores of Aragon


Castillo Calatravos s/n. 44600. Alcañiz, Teruel
Parador de Alcaņiz, Teruel, Aragon, Spain

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. 

Aerial view

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.

Reinvigorating aragonese cooking

Try the eggs done 'a la alcañizana' (the Alcañiz way), the roasted 'ternasco' (veal), and some typical sweets like 'tortas de Alma' and 'almendrados' (almond little cakes). The Somontano and Cariñena wines are perfect to accompany these exquisite meals.
