As we have already shown you on numerous occasions, Castilla-La Mancha has many things to offer the traveler. Located in the center of the Iberian Peninsula, it is considered the third largest autonomous community in the country, although this is not what interests us most, but rather its more than 320,000 hectares of natural landscapes that fill the entire region with pure air, for not to mention Don Quixote's literary route, which for many is its great attraction.
As we showed you the most beautiful towns of Ciudad Real the other day, today we want to move to another province of La Mancha. We are referring to Albacete, which also hides towns of great beauty and much tourist interest. Today in Hard Hobbit To Break we show you some of the most beautiful, although we want to apologize in advance for all those who have remained in the pipeline.
Alcala del Júcar
First of all, we want to talk about Alcalá del Júcar, one of the most picturesque towns in Albacete. Declared a Historic-Artistic Site, the town stands out for its location, since it is excavated in the mountains. You can find white houses of popular architecture, narrow and steep streets and an impressive Islamic fortress, in addition to the Devil's Caves and an irregularly shaped bullring.
For her part, Ayna is located in the Sierra del Segura, in the narrow river canyon World and it is known as "La Mancha Switzerland". Of the town stand out the Ribera del Mundo, the Hermitage of Nuestra Señora de los Remedios, the Church of Santa María de lo Alto, the Remains of the Castillo de la Yedra, the Rincón de la Toba, the Royo Odrea, the village of Carcabos and the Devil's Lookout.
Chinchilla de Montearagón
We continue our tour through the province of Albacete in Chinchilla de Montearagón, a town that is very close to the capital, on a hill that dominates the plain. Its emblem and main attraction is the Chinchilla Castle, although the church of Santa María del Salvador, the Plaza Mayor and the Town Hall should not be underestimated either.
Tarazona de la Mancha
A town that could not miss on the list is Tarazona de la Mancha, a typically La Mancha town that especially attracts attention for its Plaza Mayor, which is from the 17th century and is rectangular. In fact, it was declared a Historic-Artistic Site in 1968.
Of course, we could not forget Alcaraz either, a town where you can find Renaissance art in its historic center. Located about 80 kilometers from the city of Albacete, it stands out for the monuments that can be found in the center, such as the 16th century Plaza Mayor, the Trinidad and El Tardón towers, and the Lonja del Corregidor.
We also want to tell you about Almansa, a town known for its impressive castle, which is located on a large rock. In addition, we must highlight its old town, declared a Historic-Artistic Site. Inside it is the Palace of the Counts of Cirat, a construction that is also known as the Casa Grande.
61 kilometers from the city of Albacete is Liétor, a town that stands out above all for its location, in the Mundo river valley, where settlements belonging to the pre-Roman era have been found. Here it is possible to find a rich heritage cultural, highlighting the church of Santiago Apóstol.
Finally, and knowing that we are leaving beautiful villages in the inkwell, we want to talk about Letur, a municipality known as the pearl of the Sierra del Segura. Declared a Historic-Artistic Site, it stands out for having the layout medieval of Arab origin best preserved in all of Albacete.
