Madrid to La Mancha Day Trip

Tour Description

          Description

          The history of Castilla La Mancha is vast with quite a lot of territory to cover.  For the discerning visitor who is looking for authenticity, this region has a lot to see from monuments, beautifully preserved towns, local crafts and delicious food.  Some towns maintain the same level of charm as the visitor would have found them centuries ago.   The origins dating back to the rule of the Moors from the 8th to the 14th centuries and the name La Mancha was actually given by the former rulers describing the arid land that made up the region.  Based on very popular demand, we designed this excursion to include the highlights of Castilla La Mancha and all it has to offer to the visitor.  Famed as the region used in Miguel Cervantes book, Don Quixote, we will follow the route and discover some of the gems that make it so unique including the rich soil and climate that produces some of the best wine and olive oil in the country.
