Cañada Vellida is one of the 43 villages that form part of the Maestrazgo Cultural Park. The 43 localities belong to 6 regions of the province of Teruel: Andorra – Sierra de Arcos, Bajo Aragón, Cuencas Mineras, Gúdar – Javalambre, Maestrazgo and Comunidad de Teruel. The rich heritage, both cultural and natural, of these territories provides geological combinations and archaeological sites worth seeing. Likewise, the Maestrazgo Cultural Park has brilliant examples of Levantine Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque architecture.

One of the most emblematic buildings in this village is the Church of the Assumption of Our Lady. This work, which was built in masonry, is included in the Renaissance period. Its location in the upper part of the village gives it a great scenic value that makes this construction unique.

The Town Hall dates from the 16th century and was also built in masonry; the trading hall is located on the lower floor, which is accessed through two elegant openings with two ashlar arches on short shaft columns.

The Hermitages of San Juan and San Miguel are two temples that are not to be missed. The latter was built in the 18th century and is a rectangular masonry construction. San Juan is the patron saint of the town.

San Juan Bautista, on 24 June.

There was a desire to bring back the celebration of San Juan (pilgrimage, bonfires and planting of the ‘mayo’).
