The main historical symbol of Albacete is the Cathedral. During its existence it managed to preserve its unique architectural appearance and interior fittings, and today part of the old cathedral is converted into a museum. It houses an interesting collection of ancient murals and manuscripts, and even some miraculous icons, which are associated with a lot of amazing stories. Cathedral is located in Cathedral Square, which for many years has been the most important venue for public holidays and events.
Park Martyrs’ is very popular among those who are fond of nature. Despite its intimidating name, this park is incredibly beautiful and equally loved by both tourists and locals. The park is distinguished by its impressive area, and there are more than 12 000 pines planted alone. Today, the park is equipped with many user-friendly tracks for hiking and biking in the warmer months, with many children attractions also operating here, but there are some picnic areas present also in this park.
The city has several interesting museums, and there is Municipal Museum of Cutlery situated on the Cathedral Square (also known as the Knife Museum). Over the years, the production of knives was one of the most important crafts in Albacete; in the 80s it was possible to meet artists, offering their unique products on the streets. Unfortunately, in recent years, this trade went into decline, today the beautiful old blades can be admired in the museum. The building it occupies was built in 1912, with an area of about 450 square meters. In this historical building, the museum dates back to 2004, its collection includes a variety of historical periods.
