Taste of Alcarria: Huete land
La Alcarria is full of colors, smells and above all, nature.
Tierra de Huete is born from the flavors of La Alcarria, from this land where the land undulates to preserve all its essence. Huete, known as the Monumental City of Huete, houses a magnificent cultural heritage. Among its streets you will discover unique buildings such as the Monastery of La Merced or the Convent of Jesus and Mary, noble houses such as that of the Amoragas or, which is now a hotel. , Palace of the Counts of Garcinarro. Next to Huete, in the area of Saceda del Río, it hides a great treasure: the Roman Mines of Lapis Specularis, where more than 2,000 years ago the best Crystal in the entire Roman Empire, the Crystal of Hispania, was extracted.
But these are not the only treasures that Huete keeps, because this is a land of flavor. With flavors of vines, olive trees, lavender, wheat, lands... lands where our sheep graze, lands where bees go in search of food. A rich and prosperous land.
One of the annual events where all these flavors come together is the "Tierra de Huete" Gourmet Gastronomic Fair. Here you can enjoy all the products that La Alcarria Conquense provides, prepared in a traditional and artisanal way, maintaining from generation after generation the flavor of a land, of the Land of Huete.
