Information on Castilla-Leon

The Castilla - La Mancha scenery is characterized by vast plains and known for its fabulous historic towns of Toledo and Cuenca, both listed UNESCO World Heritage sites. It is particularly famous for the stories of Don Quichotte. Follow in his footsteps and take the ?Don Quichotte Route?, a tourist route along white windmills and historic places where he used to fight his battles in his novels.

Castilla - La Mancha has much more to offer, however! Thanks to interesting museums, such as the ceramic and archaeological museums of in Toledo, its wonderful cuisine ? including specialities such as wine, Manchego (sheep?s) cheese and garlic soup (Sopa de Ajos) ? this region is a definite must for those who appreciate the Spanish interior. In this region you are always close to a castle, the heritage of its Jewish, Christian, and Moresque occupiers. Most date back to the 9th to 12th century and are definitely well worth a visit.

Castilla - La Mancha also boasts three of the most important natural parks of the entire Iberian Peninsula. Tablas de Damiel and Lagunas de Ruidera, two wetland areas of great ecological importance, and Cabañeros, a Mediterranean forest area. Those parks are surrounded by spectacular highlands: the olive orchards in Alcarria, the limestone cliffs of Cuenca, and the mountain peaks of Sierra de Alcaraz. Two rivers run through the parks - the Tagus and the Guadiana.
