Pasaje de Lodares

Reviewed By frederic s - Altorf, France

Small street with a very nice charm as all white stone buildings are sculpted and present balconies. Stores with choices of traditional knives and little cafes such as Elefante de Jades makes it a very romantic setting for Wedding pictures on Saturdays. I was delighted to here and see the flashes of photographs on newly Wed couple. These lights made it really special.

Nice venue located near the Plaza Mayor. Pocket knives and scissors are the main characters of this museum, some of them really interesting. Don't miss it if you're in Albacete.

Catedral de San Juan Bautista

Reviewed By mariaben64 - Sydney, Australia

The inside if the Cathedral is decorated with frescos on the walls and ceiling - very calming and spiritual. The front facade has intricate stonework and arches, with the rest of the exterior of the building quite plain. Returned in the evening for tapas and a drink at Kings Bar in front of the Cathedral and saw many people leaving the Cathedral after mass and stopping for tapas and drinks.

Museo de Albacete

Reviewed By mariaben64 - Sydney, Australia

Walked to thr museum located on the soyth side of Parque Urbano Aberlado Sanches - free entry on Thursdays. The museum has over 50 %of its space dedicated to archeological exhibits, with a huge collection of ceramics. There are items from the paleolithic period, through neolithic and then ancient Roman. Also an interesting display of antique measuring instruments, but would have helped if there were explanations as to their purpose. All signage is in Spanish so a real disadvantage for non Spanish speakers. Also an art collection.

Parque La Pulgosa

Reviewed By Jos8Toledo - Toledo, Spain

Ojalá todas las ciudades imitaran a Albacete en el establecimiento de parque urbanos. Ideal para correr o bici. En cuanto llega el buen tiempo a la ciudad manchega, la vía verde que da acceso al parque está repleta de gente con bicicleta, patines, corriendo o simplemente paseando, que terminan su recorrido en La Pulgosa. Dentro del parque tenemos la oportunidad de seguir realizando deporte por el camino de arena que lo rodea, o podemos disfrutar de las enormes zonas verdes, así como de la pista de cemento, patinaje o el circuito especializado para bicicletas BMX.

Parque Lineal

Reviewed By Jos8Toledo - Toledo, Spain

El Parque Lineal de Albacete es un alargado parque urbano con forma de línea recta de más de 3 km de longitud. Es uno de los parques urbanos más grandes y emblemáticos de Albacete. Atraviesa la capital de noroeste a sureste en la zona que antes ocupaba la vía férrea Madrid-Cartagena. De ese pasado ligado al tren aún quedan restos como la instalación de un semáforo ferroviario en la zona conocida como Puente de Madera.
