Villarrodrigo

This village of a little over 500 inhabitants located at the northernmost end of the Nature Reserve lies in the ideal setting to enjoy very diverse scenery: to the south and the east you can see the forest-clad mountains of the Nature Reserve and of Alcaraz, the latter in Albacete province; and to the north and the west, the mountains and pasture lands at the easternmost end of the Sierra Morena mountains. Between the two lie the badlands, with deep gullies and earth of surprising colours.


The most important building in town is the round and graceful La Torre, a 14th-15th century tower that stands in the main square. It was recently restored and furnished with a small auditorium. Next to it is the striking town hall, of modern architecture. A small, well-kept path known as ‘Las Bayonas’ leads out of town and goes from El Portillejo to Las Terreras. Near Villarrodrigo, in the heart of the mountains, lies the hamlet of Onsares, comprising several small groups of houses. It is a good starting point for going to La Dehesa de El Oso and El Cambrón.
