The Castilla La Mancha region
The gegraphical outline of Castilla-La Mancha is of undeniable simplicity. The heart of the region is taken up with a vast plain. And as if to protect this plain mountain ranges stand guard over its boundaries: to the north, those of Molina and Sigüenza, and the mountains of Cuenca wich strech around to the east; to the west, the hills of Toledo; and to the south, the peaks of Alacaráz and Segura. Within the stout simplicity of these major features is an extraordinary divesity of landscapes.
The 1200 square miles (320,000 hectares) of natural protected spaces in Castilla-La Mancha showcase the finest scenery inland Spain can offer and make this area on of Europe's foremost keepers of National Parks and Natural Reserves. Such an array of natural surroundings in the pride and joy of our people and our heritage, where things are carefully preserved and proffered to travellers as what they are: genuine raw material for the future.
Five diferent provinces, with five inmportant capitals and dizzying number of interesting places like, Guadalajara, Albacete, Ciudad Real, Cuenca and Toledo.
In 1986, UNESCO declared it a World Heritage City, in honour of its outstanding monumental and artistic wealth and the historic and cultural heritage that it represents.
Talavera De La Reina
Talavera de la Reina is a town central Spain, and it is the capital of a large county belonging to the autonomous region of Castilla-La Mancha although it comprises some villages in the couth of Ávila and the north of Extremadura (known as the old lands of Talavera). It is located in the northeast of the province of Toledo. It is the second-largest city in Castilla-La Mancha by number of inhabitants and the first in the province, with a population in excess of 83,793 inhabitants (according to Spanish National Statistics Office information released in 2006). It borders to the north with the villages of Mejorada, Segurilla and Pepino, to the northeast with the town of Las Herencias, to the southwest with the towns of Calera and Chozas and to the northwest with the town of Velada. Its geographical location is on a river terrace of the River Tajo in a widening of the river due to the outlet of several effluents such as the Alberche, the Papacochinos, or the Portiña stream. The river forms an estuary with two main islands: Chamelo and Isla Grande. The first of the islands is protected as a nature reserve due to the wealth of its fauna and plant life. The cities perimeters are confined by the Cerro Negro (Black Hill), to the south, and the Segurilla hills, to the north. The River Tajo divides the city in two. The north is the most densely-populated area and it is linked to the areas in the south by three bridges, one of which is of Roman origin (in spite of the fact that the remains preserved are of Arab origin). The continental climate is mitigated thanks to the influence of the river. Winters are usually cold and very humid with frequent fog patches, while summers are very warm. The valley of Talavera is very fertile and vegetation comprises Mediterranean forest lands to the north with Phoenician junipers, holm olks, cork oaks and river forests. Cerro Negro has a large number of conifers as the area has been reforested.
Pottery workshops in Talavera will show you a tradition dating back hundreds of years. Take home one of its famous ceramic pieces and enjoy a decorative and useful element, which is absolutely unique. The Basílica del Prado (Prado Basilica) is a must, together with the remaining monuments in the city and a visit to the area know as "Los Pintores" (The Painters), where one can enjoy delicious tapas and beers. This is the summary of an interesting schedule for a day out in Talavera. An extensive programme of fairs and events is offered at its modern and multi-purpose Fair Facilities throughout the year. The San Jerónimo market, in the square it was named after, offers tourists the opportunity to purchase antiques and unique objects.
