Discover Culla, the Templar treat. Wander the historic centre, declared a Site of Cultural Interest in 2004, where you can discover the influences of various cultures that inhabited these lands and left behind places steeped in their essence, shaping the identity of this beautiful municipality.

A stroll through its streets and monuments takes us back in time and gives us a glimpse of the medieval and magical side of Culla: the ruins of the 13th century Muslim castle, built atop an Iberian fortress; the Commander’s granary from the 13th century; an ancient prison which remains intact and conserves the original restraints and drawings made by prisoners on its walls; the old 17th century hospital, which was the headquarters of the community outreach founded by Domingo Serrana and has an exhibition of school materials and a rural classroom from the early 20th century; the Parish Church, built at the beginning of the 17th century above an ancient Arab mosque…

And, of course, enjoy the best food from the Alt Maestrat region, which provides the perfect complement to the distinctive rural and historical ambience of the town. Its cuisine is characterised by its traditional preparation and ingredients procured from the land, such as nuts, olive oil, sought-after black truffles, mushrooms, vegetables, exquisite cold cuts and a wide variety of meats, among which the lamb is of particular note.
