Hotel La Concordia
This three star Parador is on the hill top of Cumbre de Cerro Pui-Pinos.
It became the seat of the Order of Calatrava in 1179.
In earlier times the castle formed the natural defence of the town. The original keep, and bell tower - sacristy have been preserved and an area was converted to an Aragonese Palace in the 18th century.
A plaque in the Parador Alcaniz shows that in 1410, Martin the Humane, who was king of Aragon, Catalonia, Valencia and Mallorca, died without an heir. The noblemen met to discuss the rights of the various Pretenders to the Throne.
Members of Parliament were also involved and took two years to come to a decision after consulting various Ambassadors, in particular those from Castile, France, Sicily and the Vatican. In 1412 agreement was reached and 'La Concordia' was signed with Fernando I becoming king of Aragon. Hence the name of this Parador.
This proved to be a wise choice, his descendents became some of the most famous names in Iberian history.
In 1728 Prince Philip converted part of the castle into his palace and this area became the Parador in 1968.
The position of the castle dominates the landscape of the Maestrazgo
region and has centuries old houses clustered at the foot of the hill.
In the original rooms the ceilings are 12 foot high and the walls three feet thick. Some rooms have views over the old roofs to the terraced fields below and the river.
The dining room has a high beamed ceiling and a large fireplace that was needed in earlier times to keep the room warm in winter.
The restaurants of the Parador group offer a mix of international and
regional dishes.and have a special gluten free menu. The regional specialties of this Parador are :
"Huevos a la Alcanizana", egg dish;
In the town of Alcaniz, the places to visit are the Excolegiata, the Gothic paintings in the Torre del Homenaje, the Medieval "Pasadizos" (corridors), the City Hall, and the Gothic "Lonja" (marketplace).
The International Aragon Festival is held in July and August.

|We stayed at this Parador in April 2014 upon arrival we found the staff very pleasant and helpful especially as I have an 80 year old companion who is wheelchair bound and they went that extra yard to make our stay enjoyable. We found the food to be of the best quality and the restaurant staff were most attentive. The rooms were very comfortable and we had views over the town and surrounding countryside. Overall a very enjoyable experience|

|This was one of our stops along the way and turned out to be our favorite place to stay. The staff was friendly, the meals were delicious and the views of the countryside and village from atop the hill were fantastic. Certainly one of the highlights of the trip!|

|Wanted somewhere special to stay on drive to Southern Spain for daughter's 18th birthday. Couldn't have picked a better place. Friendly staff, superb facility's, wonderful dining, including cake organised by email before the trip & perfect for the occasion. Walked around one night and had tapas in local bar- very pleasant. Superb location and easy to reach- you can see it on the hill from miles away. Will stay there again- maybe just the wife and I next time she loved it!|

|We spent 2 nights in late August, 2012 and loved every minute. It was easy to find high on a hill and we had wonderful views from our perfect room. We toured the church and tower and saw the wonderful wall paintings from the years 1290-1375. We ate in the dining room as well as the bar and found the food just great. We were also able to walk down the hill to the town - it isn't difficult.|
