Discover The Lagoons of Ruidera Spain

These lagoons, regarded as the oasis of La Mancha, are located on the border between Ciudad Real and Albacete. They are famous thanks to their abundance of water and greenery, but also because of the contrast they offer in comparison to the traditional landscapes of La Mancha. The 16 lagoons found in the natural park stretch over a total area of 9,884 acres that are filled with waterfalls, torrents, and springs. The difference in height between the first lagoon, La Blanca, and the last, La Cenagosa, is 120m. As far as flora is concerned, holm oaks, hawthorns, elms, and white poplars abound. On the site of the Lagoons of Ruidera, you will have the opportunity to enjoy many activities such as swimming and hiking, but also going on a Jeep ride, on horseback, scuba diving, potholing, paragliding, or competitive fishing. Several restaurants (some of which are only open in summer) give you the chance to try the local gastronomy on terraces generally situated close to a lagoon.
