Car Hire Albacete

Albacete Guide

Whilst Albacete isn’t known for tourist attractions, there are many things that make it a worthy, if slightly out of the ordinary destination. The key time of year for the city is during the annual feria in September when floats snake along the crowded streets and conversation is drowned out by the noisy music and wine and beer flow freely. At other times of the year it’s the city’s industrial heritage that draws most of the crowds with several museums displaying the fine metalwork the city is proud of. On summer nights make sure you visit Tascas de la Feria to try delicious local dishes.
