This city located on the South-East of the country welcomes thousands of tourists every year. The travelers come to see the magnificent nature of Albacete, visit historical places and see unique monuments.
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.
The majority of travelers prefer renting a car because a great share of Albacete sights is located outside the city. You can take a ride on picturesque landscapes, walk in piedmont regions, or join an excursion to one of local national parks. The end of September is the best time to visit Albacete as the whole city dives into an atmosphere of joy and holiday for 10 days, as in period of the year takes place the famous City Festival.
