Archaeological Sites

 

In Southern Castilla La Mancha and the neighbouring Province of Murcia have been found some of the most important archaeological sites in Europe, from early Neolithic to more recent Visigoth.

 

There are many cave art sites from the three ancient styles ranging over several thousand years of cave painting and these can be visited along with a number of informative modern museum and exhibition sites.

 

Near to Tobarra and Hellin there is the Tolmo de Minetada, a table-top mountain with the remains of a well preserved Visigoth town.

Many lakes, reservoirs, gorges, national parks, nature reserves, bird and wildlife sanctuaries, the mountain areas of the Sierra del Segura and Sierra de Alcaraz and the windmills of La Mancha and Don Quixote.
