What to see We suggesting starting off at the Posada del Rosario inn, now the tourist office, where you can get maps and routes to guide you around the city. It is also a fine example of traditional Castilian residential architecture. If you want to see other examples of typical Albacete houses, take a stroll along Tejares Street, where you'll find many such buildings. In the oldest part of the city stands the cathedral of San Juan, which took 400 years to build. You can also visit other interesting religious buildings such as La Encarnación Monastery, now a cultural centre, or La Purísima Concepción church. Nature In Abelardo Sánchez park, you'll find Albacete Museum, while in La Fiesta del Árbol park you can play a game called “bochas”, which is similar to boules. From Albacete, you can go on day trips to Lagunas de Ruidera Nature Reserve. Gastronomy and festivities Plaza de Atozano is a great place for trying some of the local tapas, such as snails, Manchego-style gazpacho or a few slices of pancetta. Cider and “miguelitos”, a popular sweet, are the star attractions during Albacete's annual fiestas (an event of National Tourist Interest), which begin in early September and last for 10 days.
