While it is known to be a castle in the first place, it has also been a prison, residence, cemetery, palace and more!

Castillo De Los Calatravos, Alcaniz Reviews - Write a Review
Si visitas Alcañiz es necesario visitar su Castillo/Parador, desde él tienes unas bonitas vistas de todo el pueblo y sobre todo de la ex-colegiata. Del Castillo merece especial atención las pinturas medievales que conserva. Se puede visitar con una visita guiada en la que explican las pinturas, ves el claustro y permiten subir a la parte superior para ver las vistas. Cuando fui yo, hubo gente que pudo ver todo lo que he comentado de forma gratuita, la visita, si puedes verlo todo gratis, quizás sea demasiado cara, recomiendo ver primero si puedes acceder gratis y si no contratarla.
Las pinturas murales por si solas hacen que merezca la pena la visita. La pena es que se puedan ver tan pocas dependencias.
Lo poco que vi me gustó
Ambiente cuidado. Buen trato. Cocina de calidad y tradicional. Precio elevado.
