The village is described by many as the Spanish Monaco, because its roads were pioneers for 20 years among the circuits where the best drivers fought for victory, and because its spirit lives on today thanks to the Motorland Circuit.
The place is not only the capital of the Bajo Aragón region, but also a pretty city full of surprises for the traveller. The two most important monuments are without doubt the Plaza Mayor with the Town Hall, the Lonja and the former Collegiate Church Santa María, and also the magnificent architectural, monumental and medieval picturesque ensemble that now houses the Parador de Turismo, the Castle of the Calatrava Order. The medieval corridors, accessible from the tourist office, are also highly recommended. Pleasant places to enjoy the regional cuisine or simply a cup of coffee allow the traveller to enjoy an unforgettable stay.
Alcañiz is part of the Route of the Snare and Bass Drum in the Bajo Aragón region, and the festival has been declared of International Tourist Interest.
