HISTORICAL AND CULTURAL HERITAGE
Parish Church of the Assumption of Our Lady. This is a 16th century temple in Gothic-Renaissance style. It was plundered during the Civil War. The benches were burnt, the altarpiece and the large organ above the choir disappeared. At the lower part of the church, the tower stands out for its elegance and magnificence, as well as the beautiful façade, which is next to the Ermita de la Virgen del Consuelo (Chapel of the Virgin of Consuelo). The façade is in accordance with the new classicist and humanist tastes of the Renaissance, and the bell tower has special characteristics as, despite being from the Baroque period, it has motifs of Mudejar heritage, which is difficult to find. The first sections are made of masonry and the upper ones are made of brick with Mudejar patterns. The interior houses modern images, although the sacristy has a silver reliquary from the 17th century.
Hermitage of the Virgen del Consuelo, 13th century The hermitage of the Virgen del Consuelo is one of the rare examples of what must have been the medieval architecture of Teruel, where a very rural Romanesque style was mixed with Gothic-Mudejar elements. It is built on the castle site. The roof of this temple and that of the hermitage of Santa Quiteria in Argente are the only ones known in the province of Teruel from the medieval period that are decorated. This is also one of the few temples of Romanesque origin in the province of Teruel and the only construction that remains preserved in its entirety from the dependencies of the old castle. It was probably built as a chapel of the fortress, and later became a parish church until the current church was built. It consists of a nave with a pointed arch and an apse covered by a pointed vault, the roof is made of polychrome wood with decorated central beams, and the apse depicts the Pantocrator with the four evangelists.
Town Hall. Recently restored, although it conserves its traditional style: the typical trading hall on the ground floor with three good semicircular arches and a sundial from the beginning of the 20th century on the façade.
Old castle, of which the towers of its perimeter remain. The remains of the wall and a tower of the castle of Camañas are located at the top of the hill. The castle was given by Alfonso II to the Order of the Holy Redeemer in 1174, later it was incorporated into the Order of the Temple and at the beginning of the 14th century it fell to the Order of the Hospital, although it was always dependent on the Alfambra commandery, the tower that remains has a square base and a semi-circular blinded window can be seen. The apse of the 13th century hermitage of the Virgen del Consuelo was built in the tower on the opposite side
Casa palacio del Obispo Molina (private) Three-storey building, made of masonry and rammed earth. It has a large tower in the centre to illuminate the staircase
