It is based on traditional products and is one of the main attractions of the province. The local products cured ham or Jamón de Teruel, Olive Oil from Bajo Aragon, Calanda Peach or Ternasco de Aragón (aragonese lamb meat), have been declared protected products. This appellation system works only for prestigious products made in the Spanish regions –which are “PDO” or “PGI” labeled as a guarantee of quality (or sometimes “D.O” standing for Denominación de Origen in Spain). The above mentioned products are the main specialties in local gastronomy, but we can also mention the black truffles, the unique Jiloca saffron, some artisan cheeses, a great variety of sweets or different kinds of bread called cañada or pintera.
As a result of the great environmental qualities and the culinary tradition in the province we can find a wide range of high quality tasty morsels in this idyllic destination for those who have a hearty appetite. But beyond amusing yourself with Teruel cuisine, you can get to know the food and agriculture business through provincial tourism. Many different activities have specially been prepared for visitors to understand the local gastronomy –such as visiting farms and production centers, product tastings and courses for beginners related to the food market in Teruel, or even visits to various museums and exhibition halls where you can get further information.
