From Toledo to Tembleque

Drive along the the N-400 road to Cuenca for 28 km and then fork right in the direction of Yepes. Highlights of this town are the remains of the wall that surrounded it, and the wonderful Iglesia de San Benito, done by Covarrubias, featuring plateresque facades, a Renaissance tower and a magnificent altarpiece.
ifteen km north of Yepes lies Ocana, a town said to be a model of Mudejar-style architecture. It became the seat of the Castillian Parliament on several occasions. Ocana's most outstanding monuments are its porticoed Baroque Plaza Mayor, the impressive and enormous Fuente Grande (Big fountain), the Gothic-Mudejar church -Iglesia de San Juan Bautista -a former synagogue which incorportes elements from the 13th to the 17th centuries, or the convents of Santo Domingo and the Carmelitas Descalzas (Barefoot Carmelites).

Heading south, after another 15 km on the A-4 to Andalucia, we come to La Guardia, the surroundings of which are strewn with curious prehistoric cave dwellings called Silos. In the town-centre we find the Santo Niño Hermitage , the Old Inquisition House and the parish church-Parroquia de la Asunción.

Twelve kilometres further along the same motorway we reach Tembleque, which boasts one of Spain's most beautiful and original town squares, dating from the times of Phillip IV, and which houses the municipal offices.

Also worth visiting are the Gothic-Renaissance Iglesia de la Asunción, and the Baroque structures of the Casa de las Torres and the Ermita de Cristo del Valle.
