From the distance looms “del Castillo” hill, where a pine forest hides almost all the village's 17th- to 18th-century Parish Church of San Miguel. The name ("Alcalá" was a name given to fortified villages) hints towards the village's past as a fortress, but no remains have been uncovered that prove the existence of one.

This small village clings to the slope of this hill, part of the Catalan section of the Camino de Santiago (Way of St. James) from Montserrat to San Juan de la Peña.


Alcalá del Obispo celebrates several festivals throughout the year. The first is celebrated the first weekend of May in honor of St. Waldeska, and a second on September 29th to celebrate the village's patron saint, St. Michael.
