About VILLAMANRIQUE

Somewhere in La Mancha, in a place whose name I do not care to remember ...

Belonging to the region of Campo de Montiel, province of Ciudad Real, between La Mancha and Sierra Morena, Villamanrique is a place to rest, to get carried away by its particular landscape and sunsets. A corner of the interior Spain, the Spain you don't know ... The Spain we would love you to know.


Villamanrique, with an approximate population of 1600 inhabitants, has a unique landscape, transition between the cereal plain of the Manchego steppe and the picturesque Paleozoic terrain of Sierra Morena. It is furrowed by numerous seasonal streams and flanked by castles and towers with centuries of history behind it.


Born-place and passage of the renowned Ruta del Quijote, Villamanrique and Campo de Montiel are lands where Spanish culture and literature has grown. Lands that have seen the birth of the immortal knight walking four centuries ago and that, today, has magnificent landscapes, with an artistic and natural heritage of the first order.
