We start in Perdiguera where the neo-Mudejar town hall, built in 1888, and the church of the Assumption, the first landmark of the route, stand out.

We continue the route in Leciñena. Its church of the Assumption, built in ashlar stone in the sixteenth century.
Attached to the temple stands a Mudejar tower, built in brick and mortar.

We now go to Alcubierre, birthplace of the bandit Cucaracha. The town that gives its name to the mountain range has one of the most beautiful towers of the Aragonese Mudejar style in the church of Santa Ana.

The next stop will be Poleñino, with another beautiful example of Mudejar tower in the church of the Assumption, much appreciated by the storks, which nest by dozens on its roof.

Finally we go to Torralba de Aragón to visit the church of San Pedro, from the 16th century, on a hill overlooking the town. Its Mudejar tower was declared an Asset of Cultural Interest in 1982.
