5 Literary, Art & Music Tours in Castile-La Mancha That You Shouldn't Miss

May 16, 2022 Kiesha Cripe

Castile-La Mancha, a Spanish land of craggy cliffs, golden fields and red soil, produces savory Manchego cheese, olives, saffron and more than its share of mystery. Chase the enduring legend of Don Quixote among the windmills of Campo de Criptana. Pass through the Bisagra Gate to experience the walled city of Toledo, a UNESCO World Heritage site that pays stylistic tribute to the Christian, Jewish and Islamic cultures. In Guadalajara, palaces and Baroque churches capture the imagination.

My favorite part of this tour was the distillery's I had no idea existed. Our tour guide Fernando helped me and taught me a lot about Tequila, the origins and how it is made. I really recommend this trip for people who like drinking tequila. When making the tour I suggest asking for Fernando. Amazing person and the is willing to work with you on places you want to visit

As a mother with two children, this was not it. Boring, exhausting for my smallest child and none of us learned anything from here. Stay away!
