  • Hiking route of more than 20 km / las LAGUNAS DE RUIDERA, between the provinces of Ciudad Real and Albacete. Visit 7 Lakes (one of them dry in the actualidad-Redondilla-) and personally, for me, the most beautiful of the 16, which is Laguna language. The ida is done on trails and is really a beautiful route, the turn is made between road (sometimes inevitably you have to go for it) and lagoons, with worse access to the lakes and the traces of man (abandoned buildings, debris and) housing estate). After making it, I recommend, although it is not circular, the ida and the return path, leaving gaps to our left to the ida and vice versa for the return. The water of the Lakes comes from a large warehouse, called aquifer, located in the basement of the Campo de Montiel and fed by the rains. On the way to the starting point, it is mandatory to make a stop at the dam and Castle of Peñarroya. Before arriving at the starting point of the route, we will see other three lagoons of minor beauty from the car.

  • Leaves falling and being low season made a place for meditation and the enjoyment of the landscape of Ruidera. It is incleible to see as so arid, suddenly the road begins to descend and suddenly appear, as if it were a mirage, a lot of gaps to more spectacular. I say this why La Mancha is an arid zone with very pronounced summer drought and where the rain is very scarce. Find a park as Ruidera is almost an "oasis" in a "desert". OS I would recommend the visit to the center of reception of visitors of lagoons, is located in Ruidera village, just at the exit of the same direction Manzanares - La Solana, right, before crossing the bridge. There you will inform about the different routes, places or actividades.lo only against our view not of this single, but in general all the parks, would have to eradicate the massification of the parks and to ensure a natural area offering to the citizen that feeling of full contact with nature and its surroundings, separated from the crowds

  • A way easy and well signposted, whether by car (and can park in each lagoon) or walk. Beautiful views, even if not in its best days, drought is noticeable mostly in the last gaps. In any case it is worth scroll; It is still beautiful, pleasant and essential environment. There is another entry as Lagunas de Ruidera, which will give you more information.
