Brilliant exponent of Aragon's rich gastronomy
The gastronomic offer of the Parador de Alcañiz is based on updated traditional Aragonese cuisine and seasonal local produce. It includes dishes such as El Pilar beans, borage, Aragonese veal, baturra-style cod, ham from Teruel and peaches from Calanda. The cafeteria and, in summer, the Cloister Terrace allow you to enjoy a more informal menu.
With an elegant palatial décor, in the stately dining room of the Calatravan castle-convent you can taste local specialities of the traditional Aragonese cuisine such as baturra-style cod, migas del pastor (fried breadcrumbs), the famous ternasco (lamb) or quesada aragonesa (Aragonese cheesecake).

History, art and motorsport in the land of kings
The building which was erected in the 12th and 13th centuries, still retains its keep, the bell tower, the sacristy and the part rebuilt as an Aragonese palace. The Plateresque tomb, the Baroque façade and its peaceful garden have also been preserved. Special mention must be made of its 14th-century Gothic frescoes, undoubtedly one of the castle's gems.
Guests can have breakfast in the cloister, enjoy a glass of wine in the gallery, or read on the sofa while they wait for dusk to fall behind the walls. The Parador de Alcañiz has everything you need to forget your daily routine and to relax. The ample spaces and the carefully decorated interiors enhance the outside light, making the rooms warm and welcoming places that are hard to leave.
All the Parador’s windows look out onto the town of Alcañiz, which has a rich history. Stare wide-eyed at its medieval underground sections, the Fountain with 72 Spouts, or the Gothic Lonja. And have fun at the MotorLand Aragón circuit which offers a sports area in which to practice autocross, karting or motocross, and enjoy competitions such as the MotoGP Grand Prix of Aragon.
