Teruel has an exceptional natural and cultural wealth and its heritage is a testimony of the different cultures that have inhabited it over the centuries. Each of its 10 regions is unique and offers a multitude of activities to do as a couple, as a family, in a group or as you wish.
The Hotel Rincón de Navarrete is located in Navarrete del Río in the Jiloca region. This region offers you the opportunity to perform, in its formidable natural environment, different activities such as
hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking, climbing and canyoning. There are also various activities throughout the year related, to adventure sports.
For fishing lovers this will also be an ideal place, since this activity can be carried out both in the Pancrudo river and in the Lechago reservoir, half a kilometer from Navarrete Del Río.
Another sporting activity that can be practiced is golf. Just 50 minutes away from the hotel at
Gambito Golf Club, you can enjoy a day dedicated to your favorite sport.
Although if you are looking for art, architecture, history, gastronomy, culture, this, of course, is also
Here we suggest some of the places you can visit during your stay in our hotel, but think that there are many more.
Calamocha, 8 minutes from Navarrete del Río, owes its name to the Arabs (Qal’at Musa ,)موىس قلعة) which means “fortress of Musa”, after the name of its founder, Musa ibn Musa), who stayed there for four centuries, during which time they left much of their culture and developed a complex irrigation system.
It is worthwhile to turn off the road and stroll through its winding and typical narrow streets, where you can discover important Aragonese-style manor houses such as the Tejada Palace, the Vicente Palace or the Valero Bernabé Palace, among others.
The church of the Assumption, is a baroque style construction, built during the 17th century, although it has eclectic elements such as the Mudejar tower of the 16th century.
In addition, Calamocha preserves a Roman bridge over the Jiloca River.
Although if there is something that distinguishes it from the rest of the world, it is its ham. Not in vain in this city they have a museum dedicated to this delicacy with D.O.
In this case we recommend you to go a little bit out of the province of Teruel, to visit Anento. This small village, located in the south of the province of Zaragoza, is only 25 km from the hotel. Located at the bottom of a valley, its corners and paths remain in bloom almost all year round. At the foot of the village is its vegetable patch, watered by the Aguallueve spring.
The village is very neat, clean and arranged; the houses, typical of village, adorned with the colors of the lands of its landscape. Its narrow streets preserve a marked medieval style.
The village church of San Blas is a Romanesque building of the 13th century inside which, in addition to its wall paintings, its altarpiece of the 15th century is possibly the largest and best preserved Gothic altarpiece of what was the former Crown of Aragon.
The Gallocanta Lagoon, only 26 km from the hotel, is the largest saltwater lagoon in Europe. It covers an area of 1924 hectares and has a maximum length of 7 km and a maximum width of 2 km. The high concentration of salt makes it a great meeting place for birds including: vultures, eagles, cranes and hoopoes. After Doñana, it is one of the most important enclaves of aquatic birds in the Iberian Peninsula.
The Gallocanta Lagoon is famous not only for its beauty, but also for being a true ornithological paradise. Every winter, it is the place chosen by the common crane to make a stop along the way during the course of their migratory journeys, up to 60,000 birds have been counted.
This municipality is known for the cultivation of saffron, it was a place of great interest and importance for its economic activity and today it is still known for maintaining one of the traditions that are still preserved in the Jiloca region. So much so, that here you will find the Monographic Museum of Saffron, located inside a palace-house of classic Aragonese style of the XVII- XVIII centuries and in which the work of cultivation, collection of the flowers, collection of the stigmas of saffron and sale of the same is exposed, as well as all the tools used for it.
Monreal del Campo has an important number of ancestral homes, among which the Casa de Doña Concha or Casa de Mateo Gilbert and the Casa de los Antoñitos, built in the 18th 19th centuries respectively, stand out, not only for their good state of preservation, but also for their entrance doors, the latticework of their balconies and their magnificent eaves.
We also highlight the exempt tower to the church (separated from the main body of the church) that we find here, being one of the few known in the province of Teruel.
The Castle of Peracense, located at 1,535 meters above sea level and perched on a spur of Rhodenian stone with which it almost mimics, is one of the most beautiful, best preserved and unknown of southern Aragon.
This castle is an extraordinary example of military architecture. The fortress was built in the first half of the 14th century, although it is known that there was some earlier construction, by the year 1284. Its location, at the northern foot of the peak of San Ginés, allows it to dominate the plain of the Jiloca river valley.
In 2000, after thirteen years of restoration, it was opened to the public. Thanks to this work, Bronze Age ceramics and medieval silver coins were found, as well as the largest collection of armor in Spain. All these objects and more can be seen in the castle museum.
But it doesn’t end here…
