  • Guadalajara Town Hall

Just a short distance from Madrid you'll find this city in Castile-La Mancha, the capital of the area of La Alcarria which has been made famous by several works of literature. The symbol of the city is the Infantado Palace.Read more...

What to see The highlight is the Infantado Palace, a work in the Isabelline style on whose façade you'll see a multitude of contrasts between the original Gothic style and the Renaissance windows. The historic part of the city revolves around the Calle Mayor. Some the interesting buildings include the Town Hall, the large houses in the Plaza de Dávalos square and the old Palace of Los Mendoza with its Plateresque interior courtyard. There are also numerous examples of religious architecture. Gastronomy The city has a large number of traditional restaurants where you can enjoy the typical dishes of the province like roast lamb or kid, trout, crayfish and 'morteruelo serrano' (a hearty stew). The honey from La Alcarria is especially famous. Excursions If you have time, we recommend taking the route of the 'Journey to La Alcarria', based on the work of the same name by the writer Camilo José Cela, Nobel Prize for Literature. To the northeast is the town of Sigüenza, a medieval town that is well worth a visit. Other interesting towns are Cogolludo, Jadraque and Atienza. If you prefer natural attractions, a good option is the Tejera Negra Beech Forest nature reserve.
