Beech park of Tejera Negra
This is Europe’s southernmost beech park. Located between the rivers Lillas and Zarzas, the park boasts a unique microclimate environment. Autumn is the best season to visit the beech park and walk the two clearly-signed circle paths: Senda de Carretas and Senda del Robledal. Parking space reservations must be made all year round at http://agricultura.jccm.es/parques/forms/parqf001.php
The Black Village Route
The route along the villages representative of the Spanish Black Architecture is surely one of the best trips our guests can make in Castilla La Mancha. You can drive your car or ride your bicycle from one village to another, where you’ll see the local architecture made of dark stone and slate slabs which combine in a uniform chromatic environment of genuine appeal.
