Travel without contaminating
Waking up at the Parador in Alcañiz is an unexpected pleasure of this third stage. We can see the whole region from above and a horizon that would take us to Huesca.
The landscape between these two sites is one of the most arid in the peninsula and gives rise to some spectacular moments to enjoy driving.
We began the day with a picnic inside the Parador to taste the vegetables and cheeses that are so famous in the area.
This picnic could not fail to have pink tomatoes. Samantha and Bienvenido, the Endesa employee that took part in the stage, simulated a chapter of MasterChef with the challenge of preparing the perfect picnic whilst our cameras recorded another chapter from the tour’s miniseries.
Another surprise brought by this stage was the opportunity to film inside the Alcañiz circuit. There was a great sensation of sharing the same asphalt as so many motorcycling greats.
After an initial tour to get to know the circuit the second time, both wanted to win. In one car, the Mayor of Alcañiz, Juan Carlos Gracia Suso; in the other Samantha with Bienvenido. Finally, the mayor, a motorcar devotee, won because he came to the circuit with the clearest ideas.
After several kilometres, we arrived at Huesca where the local authorities received us.
A few points of interest
Apart from authorities, a large number of neighbours came up close to meet the celebrity. A woman promoting local confectionery products whilst sellers from the ONCE (Spanish Association of Blind People) stand took photos with the MasterChef judge.
