Guided visit to Alarcón. In a pronounced sickle of Júcar, Alarcón stands proudly, viewpoint and natural defense where there are.

No wonder it was chosen from a former settlement site, its natural moat and its watchtower, designate it as a strategy at first glance. From the entrance to its walled enclosure we immerse ourselves in a trip to the Middle Ages. The castle retains part of its Muslim aroma but its subsequent reforms bring us closer to maidens. And since 1997 a unique vision of art joins this beautiful town: The Mural Paintings of Jesús Mateo in the old church of San Juan Bautista, a beautiful Herrera building built at the end of the 16th century. Nature and Man as pretexts to configure a personal and committed universe that has been declared of World Artistic Interest by UNESCO.

Guided visit to Villanueva de la Jara. Beautiful Manchega villa located southeast of the province of Cuenca. In your journey through its streets you will find that it is, in itself, a treasure.

La Plaza Mayor, with its Renaissance buildings of the Town Hall and Posada Masso. As well as their emblazoned mansions. Impressive is the Basilica of Our Lady of the Assumption, a beautiful example of a mixture of Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque architecture. Full of magnificent works of art and hidden ministries. The cult buildings are completed by the convent of Santa Ana, that of the Carmelites or the hermitage of San Antón.

Marvel yourself at the rich of a beauty and ample hermitage, accumulated over the centuries.
