In its urban complex, the church stands out, a large temple dedicated to San Juan Bautista, built in the seventeenth century. It has a simply decorated Mudejar tower, dated between the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries that could well have been a previous watchtower of Islamic origin. Inside, we must highlight the baroque chapel of the Virgen de la Cabeza, an object of great devotion in the area. His festival, with a procession led by the prior and the mayordomos, is celebrated on the last Sunday in April.

Remarkable elements of traditional architecture are the restored oven, inside the town; the laundry room and the fountain on the outskirts; a hermitage erected in honor of Santo Cristo next to the cemetery; and a peirón dedicated to San Juan Bautista, on the old road to Daroca.

It is part of the set of populations called "Anillo de Gallocanta" belonging to the Camino del Cid, a section in which the vineyards and the spring beauty of almond and cherry blossom trees stand out.
