From Zaragoza capital to the NW. from the province you go on the A-68 motorway where you have exit, or on the Logroño Highway (N-232) with a well-marked double exit, from here the road that passes through Remolinos and then heads to the Cinco Villas and towards Novillas and Navarra.

The festive calendar begins with the traditional Three Kings Parade to continue with the eve of the festival of San Antón, on January 16, with the fires around which the neighbors gather to give a good account of sausages and roasted potatoes washed down with a good wine.
One of the parties with more roots is Thursday Lardero (the Thursday before Ash Wednesday). This afternoon is considered a holiday and we go to the countryside to taste the traditional "tortilla" of Thursday Lardero composed of sausage and sausage between a special bread called "cake" that is only made this day.
Following the calendar comes Holy Week in which around two thousand people distributed in the different brotherhoods participate, with processions every day, ranging from the procession of L Burra on Palm Sunday, that of the Holy Burial, until Sunday of Resurrection with the Meeting.
It is traditional for the first Sunday of June to go to the hermitage of the Virgen del Castellar, shared with the neighbors of Torres de Berrellén.
Around June 13, the festival of San Antonio de Padua is celebrated with various religious acts, taking out the saint in procession accompanied by the traditional "Paloteao".
After the summer, the feast of Our Lady of the Castle is celebrated on September 8 which, like the previous ones, witnesses a large influx of visitors. According to tradition in the year 1,119, in the reconquest of Alagón the Virgin appeared to Alfonso I the Battler. A hermitage was erected and this fact is considered as the origin of these ancient festivals. In honor of the Virgin the Dance of Moors and Christians is represented and every five years the streets of Alagón are animated by the presence of the Comparsas de Moros y Cristianos of the town of Sax (Alicante), twinned with Alagon.
