Eat and sleep in Albacete
Restaurant

We were in transit, the stop in town being essentially for lunch.
This huge restaurant, with a varied buffet, was a perfect solution: we ate quickly and cheaply, and the children, usually complicated, found enough in the varied menu to put their worries at rest. Some confusion due to the frequency, but without major inconveniences.

Visiting the city only in passing, obviously there was no reason to dwell on the hotels.
I could not, however, fail to appreciate the excellent appearance and location of this hotel, which remains in the memory, in case…

Site: Hotel

In my youth, I was impressed by the imposing image of Albacete castle in my books.

Twenty years ago, passing nearby in the way to Benidorm, without stopping, I saw the castle.

Almansa
Almansa

This time, passing again but with time to stop, I had to visit the castle.

Surprise! ​There’s no castle in the city, the one that I had in mind is located, not far, but… in Almansa.

​When will I be around again to stop in Almansa?​
