As the Matarranya region has been influenced by Aragonese, Catalan and Valencian cultures, you will have an excellent opportunity here to familiarize yourself with several important regional cultures that have contributed to the overall culture of Spain.
Elegant and stately, Valderrobres boasts an important architectural heritage. Walking its cobbled streets, squares and arcades is like returning to the middle ages.
A medieval bridge over the Matarranya River offers access to the town.
At the highest point in town sits a palatial, gothic, 14th - century castle. Next to the castle is the massive, Gothic Santa María la Mayor church, constructed at the beginning of the 15th century.
In the main square, you´ll find the magnificent, Renaissance town hall - a beautiful mansion built in 1599.
For nature lovers, the Matarranya region offers many beautiful spots to stroll and enjoy: 100-year-old fields of olive trees, networks of mountain trails, and rivers with deep pools of clear water that are ideal for bathing in the summer.
The region also offers ample opportunities to practice adventure sports such as canyoning, climbing, speleology, horseback riding, canoeing, quad biking, BTT, 4x4, and more.
