Destination La Castilla La Mancha and the city of Cuenca

La Castilla La Mancha and the city of Cuenca was a fascinating place to visit.  The history, culture, food scene and spectacular views should not be missed. During my time in La Castilla La Mancha I also visit the city of Toledo which I share on part one of this series about my trip in Oct.

My trip started with a non-stop flight from Atlanta to Madrid with an overnight stay in Chinchón located in the Madrid region. Dinner at our Parador (hotel) that evening was the perfect way to wrap up a day of sightseeing the local sites and putting a bit of jet lag to rest. On to Cuenca and Toledo for an experience that was filled with so many exciting activities and culinary experiences.

UNESCO World Heritage sites were given to Toledo in 1986 and Cuenca since 1996. With all the history of both cities, this trip is sure to fulfill a dream vacation for you and your travel buddies.
