Hiking Castilla La Mancha: after Quixote
If I say "mills, wine and Don Quixote", surely your mind immediately transports you to Castilla-La Mancha.
 
This Autonomous Community is known internationally for the famous Cervantes character, and also for the wines of the Ribera del Duero. From all this you will learn a little if you go hiking in Castilla-La Mancha. But above all, you will discover much more than you had imagined. Well, you will understand that, in addition to these reasons, what makes this land exceptional is its nature.
 
Castilla-La Mancha boasts a great landscape contrast. Its natural wealth matches its heritage; mixing towns and cities full of charm with spectacular landscapes and natural monuments.
 
Two National Parks, six Natural Parks and twelve Reserves make the possibilities for hiking in Castilla-La Mancha are endless. Names such as the Daimiel Tables, the Lagunas de Ruidera, Cabañeros or the Calares del Río Mundo are sure to sound good.
 
In addition, Castilla-La Mancha has some very interesting themed routes that will delight all those who, in addition to walking, want to know a little more about the cuisine and history of this land. We speak, of course, of enological or literary routes, such as Don Quixote.
 
What is certain is that any option you choose to go hiking in Castilla-La Mancha will make you enjoy without reservation of a wonderful nature. If you also have the company of guides and local experts to help you interpret the landscape, you will end up being a true expert in the region.
6 things you will master if you hike in Castilla La Mancha
1. Botany
 
In the Sierra de Ayllón, in Guadalajara, is one of the largest beech forests in southern Europe. This is the Black Tejera, a beautiful beech forest that remains as an unaltered symbol of times in which our peninsula was colder and more humid. A hiking trail crosses the hillside and offers unique perspectives of beech, oak and other botanical species that inhabit the landscape.
 
 
2. Geography and geology
 
Every good teacher knows that, when it comes to learning, an experience is worth more than any explanation. Therefore, there is nothing like an exit to the countryside to understand all the ins and outs of the landscape and the forces that originate it.
 
The Enchanted City, in the Serrania de Cuenca, is a living example of the passage of time through the rocks that make it up. In the Lagunas de Ruidera there are geological formations present only here and in Croatia. The geography also makes its way spectacularly in the Barrancas de Castrejón and Calaña, similar to the Canyon of the colorado, or in the Natural Park of the Calares del Mundo and la Sima.
 
 
3. Ornithology
 
In Castilla-La Mancha abound the natural places in which to devote themselves to the observation of birds. They are places protected by diverse figures of protection, that constitute authentic paradises for some species. In the National Parks of Cabañeros or the Tablas de Daimiel you can make several hiking trails while enjoying this hobby. Also in the lagoon complex of Manjavacas, in the Sierra de Alcaraz or in the Serrania de Cuenca.
 
 
4. Literature
 
One of the most famous routes of Castilla-La Mancha is what gets its name, precisely, the most famous character of the place. The Don Quijote route runs through 148 municipalities and some of the main natural areas of the region. Through greenways, historic roads or riverbanks, it passes, for example, through the Campos de Criptana and its famous mills, the Lagunas de Ruidera or Daimiel.
 
Hiking along the Route of Don Quixote will allow you to see incredible landscapes while discovering the secrets of the greatest work of our literature.
 
 
5. History
 
Castilla-La Mancha has a broad history and indications of it can be found throughout the province. The oldest ones are in Sierra Madrona, where, hiking, we can find examples of rock art. But in addition, the routes of the Autonomous Community will take us to know many castles and fortresses, belonging to the different cultures that populated the region.
 
6. Ethnology and enology
 
While enjoying all the above, in all safety, our steps will take us close to some villages and fields. Maybe you want to take a short break on the walk to investigate a little more about the customs of this land, talk to the locals, get to know their gastronomy and their local products. Of course, also wine, whose culture extends beyond mere tasting. You will understand that hiking and ethnotourism are natural companions.
