Alarcón is located in the province of Cuenca, in the NIII (N one eleven) road. It’s a small village but big in history and experienceswith around one hundred eighty people .
Surrounded by the river Júcar and it’s walls. You have the feeling of becoming to the Medieval Ages. As in Manhatan, Alarcón is situated in an island.
Stones, trees, birds, people,… everything transmit me positive energy. It’s a place that have Nature, Modern Art, History and Gastronomy, it’s a place full of surprices.
If you want to be in the Nature, there are paths to walk around. The path along the river has more shade, it’s an amazing feeling listening to the birds and the river flowing in its flow, the wispering of the trees and the smell of fresh air.
The longer path offers you the view of Alarcón in its beginnig. The shocking of the castle crowning the villa, the meanders of the river, agriculture lands, and the sky.
The mural painting is sponsored by UNESCO and its author Jesús Mateo put the modern touch in the town.
