Tourism in the Sierra de Alcaraz y Campo de Montiel -  District of Albacete:
The Sierra de Alcaraz y Campo de Montiel district this enclave in the southwest of the province of Albacete, bordering the provinces of Ciudad Real and Jaén. Historically, it has constituted a meeting point for Andalusia, the Levant and La Mancha.

Lagunas de Ruidera

The Sierra de Alcaraz y Campo de Montiel district is a mosaic of contrasts in which plains and mountains are combined. It is a district with a lightly undulating landscape, where the crop fields and olive groves alternate with extensive patches of undergrowth and Mediterranean forest, characterised by the abundance of pine and holm oak. Intrincate valleys and steep mountain ranges merge with vast plains.

The Sierra de Alcaraz y Campo de Montiel district is irrigated by fast-flowing and turbulent rivers, which become serene and peaceful in a maturity in which, often, they form tranquil marshland. They are lands whose natural richness extends from the Calar del Mundo until the Lagunas de Ruidera.

Its character as a crossroads of the adjacent regions has ensured that, over time, different civilisations settled in the territory. That is why the Sierra de Alcaraz y Campo de Montiel district constitutes a valid reference to make a tour through a history characterised by a diversity which is extended to its people, its craftsmanship and its cuisine.
