Daroca : Michelin's recommendations
Daroca appears between two ridges with 4km of crenellated walls originally punctuated by more than a hundred towers and studded with fortified gates, including the large Puerta Baja, defended by two square towers. Muslim in origin, the town was liberated from the Moors in 1120 and gained its municipal freedom in 1142. Daroca has retained the relics of the miracle of the Holy Altar Cloths (1239), fabrics which bear bloodstained imprints.

Among the paintings on wood, of particular note are the retables of St Peter (14C), St Martin (15C) and the precious reliquary-monstrance carved by the Catalan Moragues in the 14C which once contained the precious relics of the Corporales.
Interesting for its fine Romanesque gable and 12C portal. The 13C murals in the apse have unfortunately been altered.
Inside, there is a 15C retable, the 15C chapel of relics in place of the early Romanesque apse, and a Gothic painted retable dedicated to St Michael. The collegiate was built in the Romanesque period to house holy relics.
