Although we think that the best thing we can do in our hotel is to relax and enjoy it, fleeing from everyday stress, we offer interesting activities to do in it or in the area. Massages, wine tastings, picnics or visits to an oil mill …
One of the oldest crops in the Matarranya is the olive and in parallel the artisanal industry of olive oil production. This has developed a rich oil culture that has survived to the present day. In this proposal you can get to know the lesser known elements of harvesting and production, visit old canalization elements, a state-of-the-art mill and a traditional one, an olive tree of almost 2,000 years, a farm that produces organic oil, tastings, etc.
The options are diverse and the duration of the route will depend on what you want to visit, whether in whole or in part. Virtually all visits will be attended by the producers themselves.
Taste an organic wine of a small production accompanied by an organic oil where you can dip bread, try different types of olives … next to your own vineyards, almond and olive trees..
Sustainability, ecology, balance, proximity, authenticity … are some of the concepts that people sensitive to nature, the environment, agriculture and consumption want to see one day be not the exceptional but what is usual.
The options of this route are diverse: to visit an oil mill, a natural cosmetics workshop, a farm, an orchard, a food workshop, a small winery … all this ecological and from the hand of the farmers or producers themselves, which will show their facilities and /or crops. During all visits and activities, the products can be purchased directly from the producer.

Villages & Towns
One of the main assets of the Matarranya heritage is its villages. Whether because of the isolation or because progress took to reach the county this “village essence” has remained almost intact to this day, with stone buildings, winding streets, where it still comes out to “take the fresh”and breathes the lifelong rurality. Although Matarranya has two villages integrated in the Association “The Most Beautiful Towns in Spain” all the villages in the region have something unique and deserve to be visited.
This route is made up of four villages that can be visited in half a day without a guided tour.
