What to see It stands at the foot of one of Spain's oldest and most impressive Arabic fortifications. You can, for instance, still see two towers and parts of the defensive walls of Ayub Castle. The old quarter is one of the finest examples of Mudejar architecture. We especially recommend the Collegiate Church of Santa María. To admire other Mudejar treasures, we suggest visiting the churches of San Andrés and San Pedro de los Francos or the Collegiate Church of El Santo Sepulcro. Calatayud Museum is a great place to learn about the city's Roman past. It houses many items discovered at the site of the ancient city of Bilbilis, among the most important in all of Aragon. This archaeological site, along with that of Valdeherra, is the closest to the historic city centre. While strolling around Calatayud, you'll also discover many stately houses and Romanesque palaces. Gastronomy Local produce is the star attraction, especially borage and sweet onions. Cured sausage meats and cheese, together with lamb dishes or breadcrumb and grape casserole, are some of the many other local specialities. Trips The Piedra Monastery Nature Reserve, boasting spectacular waterfalls and grottoes, as well as the spa towns of Jaraba and Alhama de Aragón, are all within easy reach and great options for a day out.
