Albacete has its origins on the Andalusi power that controlled the city in the past. The industry and academic activities have also been part of the development of the place.

One of the most famous sites in Albacete is the Posada del Rosario, a building dated in the XVI century. It is a traditional old house that combines Gothic, Mudéjar and Renaissance styles. Nowadays, it is used as the Touristic Centre of Albacete and as a Library.

If you walk around Albacete you will come across the Pasaje de Lodares, a beautiful gallery that in the year 1925 had a commercial and residential use. It has a characteristic modernist architecture combined with Renaissance columns. It is one of the places both locals and tourists enjoy the most, and it is one of the two examples of this kind of galleries in Spain. Unique!

The Cathedral of Albacete, known as San Juan Bautista Cathedral is also one of the most emblematic sites of the city. It was built back in the XVI century, but it wasn’t until the end of the Spanish Civil War when it was finished, that is why part of its charm resides on the mixture of styles that compose the building. This temple is located in the city centre and it is considered the symbol of Albacete.
