Acquaintance with various monuments of architecture. Immersion in Castile history and culture. Enjoy the region's extraordinary cuisine. Take walks in incredible natural places. .
The central part of Spain is a great place for traveling by car. Various landscapes, cultural heritage, and popularity, thanks to the novel "Don Quixote" by Miguel Cervantes, attract many tourists here. National parks and architectural monuments are scattered all over the region, and if you add to them a day in the neighboring province of Aragon, you will get a rich circular route, which you can start and finish at the airport of Madrid. Taking into account the climate (hot summer and frequent frosts in winter), it’s better to plan a trip during the spring, early summer or throughout the autumn.
