With almost 15,000 sq. km. of plain and hardly any geographical features standing out except in the south eastern part of the province where you can see the foothills of Sierra de Segura with beautiful mountain landscapes. The source of the Mundo River in Riopar, a tributary of the Segura, is especially breathtaking. The natural phenomenon of the Lagoons of Ruidera, near Ossa de Montiel, are also interesting.
A visit should be made to La Roda, Chinchilla, Villarrobledo, Almansa, where you will see aristocratic mansions dating from medieval times. Alpera and Minateda cave paintings can also be found in natural shelters dating back to the neolithic age. The province is famed for hunting and fishing and during the partridge season people from both Spain and abroad gather here.
The Moors and Christians festival held in Caudete on 7th and 8th September have proved very interesting to the tourist, as has Tarazona de la Mancha. Albacete, capital of the province, has a very interesting Archaeological Museum with modern painting collections dedicated to Benjamin Palencia. It is also an ideal centre for daily outings to some of the other towns.
