This weekend’s trip was to a town called Jadraque in the province of Guadalajara. The province, which is located in the region of Castilla y la Mancha owns its name to the Arab “wād al-ḥaŷarah” which means river that runs over stones.
The most representative landmark of the region is the medieval Castle of Jadraque, often called “Castle of Cid” as it is quoted in the poem Cantar del Mio Cid.
Our destination was embalse de Pálmaces where had a splendid time enjoying the last summer weekends of the year.
