Although remains of Iberian settlements can be found in Cinctorres, the first written record of the village dates to October of 1194, when King Alfonso of Aragón established the town as part of the charter of the Camarón region. It was subject to Morella until February 9, 1961, when Charles II granted it and several other villages its own town charter.


Cinctorres’ principal economic activities include agriculture and livestock, although the town also is home to several family industries including girdle-making, a feed production cooperative, and public services, among others.

What to see

Visitors can stop in at the Town Hall, Sanjuan Palace, and Parish Church, stroll through typical streets and places including the Sol de Vila, Carreró del Tolino street, and Cuartillo, and explore the splendid Fidebe, Capellanets, and Gaspar de Alicante mansions.


Cinctorres lies on a small plain, located atop a plateau at an elevation of 910 m, and features panoramic views, cold winters, and pleasant summers.
