DATE: February 19 at 8 a.m.
Discover and enjoy Bajo Aragón with a complete visit -with a local guide- to the monumental Alcañiz and the town of Calanda, famous for its delicious peaches, for the Easter tamborrada, and for Luís Buñuel, the greatest exponent in our country of surreal current, which he developed together with the painter Salvador Dalí, with whom he made his debut as a director in 1929 with Un perro andaluz. And to get closer to the figure of this brilliant and irreverent creator, we are going to enjoy an exclusive guided tour at the Buñuel Calanda Center.
Alcañiz is art and culture but it is also the motor city. Bathed by the Guadalope River, the capital of Lower Aragon and the second largest and most populated city in Teruel, is crowned by the castle of the Order of Calatrava, now converted into a National Parador. In addition to its imposing castle, a mandatory stop in its historic center is Plaza de España, framed by two of the most beautiful buildings in the city: the 16th-century town hall, and the fish market, which was the public market in the Middle Ages. Next to it, the tourist office, whose basement houses a series of medieval passageways that testify to the importance of this city during the Middle Ages. Among its religious heritage, the ex-collegiate church of Santa María stands out, in Baroque style with its monumental façade, and the churches of the Escolapios, del Carmen and San Francisco.
An ideal excursion to start discovering Lower Aragon, a harsh and dry region inhabited by welcoming and hospitable people.
