Alcañiz


Alcañiz, the Gateway to Tierra Baja

Alcañiz is a city with a long history, full of artistic and natural wealth.

Its cultural heritage bears witness to the different peoples that have inhabited the city throughout the centuries.

You can find prehistoric remains, traces of Iberian or Roman civilisations, vestiges of the Moors, hidden passageways carved into rock, monuments, palaces, churches, manors and medieval architectural treasures such as Calatravos Castle (one of the symbols of Alcañiz).

The local traditions are another unmissable feature. Alcañiz is a city that, during Holy Week, beats to the sound of drums – a deep-rooted tradition that makes the very spirit of the city vibrate with emotion.

It is also set in the heart of breathtaking countryside. The La Estanca reservoir and Las Saladas wetlands are just two of the natural beauty spots of great environmental value.
