We propose a different way of exploring the towns and villages in the province of Teruel: through the route of the Drums. This different, original and curious proposal is an excellent way of exploring the lands of the Bajo Aragón region and also of discovering its most traditional festivities. Would you like to know more?  

The villages of Andorra, Híjar, Calanda, Alcañiz, Samper de Calanda, La Puebla de Híjar, Urrea de Gaén, Alcorisa and Albalate del Arzobispo all take part in this festival. And that's because they all have something very special in common. During the religious festival of Easter week (in March or April, to commemorate the passion and death of Jesus Christ), many of the religious events are accompanied by massed bands of musicians playing hundreds of the types of drums known as the tambor and the bombo in a spectacular and moving soundscape. This is an experience of a lifetime.

You can take part in the Days in Praise of the Route of the Tambor and the Bombo which are celebrated in rotation by the nine villages just before Easter week, and which feature the religious brotherhoods from all the locations along the route. To find out more about this attraction, we recommend a visit to the Easter Week Visitor Centres in Alcorisa, Samper de Calanda and La Puebla de Híjar, where you'll also be able to see the processional floats and carved religious images, and the habits of the religious brotherhoods.

Be adventurous and enjoy a different kind of tourist experience, and the chance to take part in the traditions and history of Teruel. You can arrange your visit to suit yourself according to your particular interests and the time you have available, as there are no fixed itineraries established.
