The Route of the Desierto de Calanda (Calanda Desert) and Sierra de La Ginebrosa connects the heartlands of the Lower Aragon region with one of its most wooded areas, the Sierra de La Ginebrosa mountains. This is a land of eagles, wild goats, Eurasian eagle-owls and other species that are highly wary of humans and seek the tranquillity of these settings.

When you arrive at the junction leading either to Torrevelilla or La Ginebrosa, take the road to the former and you will arrive at the ruins of the former Convent of the Discalced Carmelites, an impressive building that was abandoned in the mid-19th century when the then prime minister Mendizábal enacted the law for the confiscation of church-owned lands. Its location in an extensive, uninhabited area led to the name of “Desierto” (desert) by which it is now known.
