Albacete experienced its greatest development period in the XIX and XX centuries, with the railroad arrival. For this reason, this city of La Mancha has a clean, functional, and a practical look where most of the notable buildings are civil constructions such as the old City Hall, now museum of Albacete. You can also visit the Cutlery Museum displayed in the Casa del Hortelano; a palace of the early XX century that showcases a great variety of objects and knives that have given popularity to the city of Albacete.
You should definitely not leave the city without visiting the Lodares passage, a commercial gallery with an Italian touch. Also, the Cathedral of San Juan Bautista, where the image of Albacete’s Virgin of Los Llanos is kept.
