You can start your acquaintance with the city from Museum de Albacete. The halls of the museum store a large collection of archeological finds and works of art from absolutely different epochs. If picturesque nature reserves attract you, make a walk in Abelardo Sanchez Park. This place will be particularly interesting for kids as here are traditionally organized engaging and enjoyable programs for children. These programs tell little visitors about peculiarities of the nature and animal world. Among architectural sights we should mention Castillo de Almansa and old districts Villena and Chinchilla de Monte-Aragón, which are located nearby. Here you will find fortifications, living quarters and mansions built several centuries ago. These districts were built at the times when the Moors ruled Albacete, so the architecture doesn’t have anything in common with traditional Spanish quarters.
In Chinchilla de Monte-Aragon township you can see a castle, which was built yet in the 15th century. Another wonderful example of Mauritanian architecture can be found in Cuenca district. When you get tired of watching historical sights, it’s high time to visit numerous restaurants and enjoy the skills of local chiefs. In Albacete there are many cinemas, sports centers, and attraction parks that are highly recommended for tourists with kids. Copyright www.orangesmile.com

Ayuntamiento de Albacete 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. 
Albacete 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.

The Royal Palace remains the main landmark of Madrid. Nowadays, the palace is used to host most important meetings and official ceremonies. An ancient Moorish castle stood on the site of the modern Royal Palace until 1755. In the middle of the 18th century the castle lost its strategic importance, and as it was built in a very beautiful place it was decided to demolish it and build a luxury palace instead. Currently, this magnificent building has more than 2,000 rooms halls that hold precious collections of old items - chandeliers, clocks, furniture, musical instruments, weapons and artworks. … Open
