Culture & History
Hostelry Matutano-Daudén Palace: A place full of charm and tradition
Hostelry in La Iglesuela del Cid is a charming hotel located in the old 18th century Matutano-Daudén Palace. This historic building of great architectural importance has been converted into a welcoming and charming space to offer visitors a unique experience.
History of the Hostelry Hotel Matutano-Daudén Palace
The origin of Iglesuela del Cid dates back to its consideration as a village during the Middle Ages, although Iberians and Romans settled in the area before that. After the reconquest of what is now Maestrazgo from the Muslims, the custody of the town was entrusted to the Order of the Temple in the 13th century and a century later to the Order of the Hospital.
Some place names in the municipality, a legend, and even its own name, recall the passage of El Cid Campeador through the municipality. Thus, between the Plaza Mayor and Calle Ondevilla is the 18th century Palacio de los Matutano-Daudén.
Opposite this building, today converted into the Hostelry in La Iglesuela del Cid, is another smaller building belonging to the Daudén family, and the palaces of Guijarro and Aliaga located in Calle San Pablo. One of the most significant Baroque palaces of this historic complex, the Palace of Agramunt, was built around the Calle Mayor.
