Located in the northeast of the province of Albacete, visitors will find a wide range of tourist options involving nature, history, gastronomy, and traditions. La Manchuela begins with a quintessential La Mancha plain, interrupted by the course of two rivers, the Júcar and Gabriel, forming an extremely rich and varied landscape, flora, and fauna. Visit a region with an unspoiled ecosystem, nice spots for a stroll, culinary delights, as well as medicinal baths, and enjoy the feeling of balance, peace of mind and serenity, so often difficult to come across in modern times. In short, you’ll feel as if time were standing still.
