If we refer to the most beautiful towns in the province of Ciudad Real as historical sites, Almagro will surely come to mind, but there is another lesser known place that also stands out in this regard.

This is Villanueva de los Infantes, a town that I was recently told about as an architectural ensemble that had to be discovered, and which is part of the group of the most beautiful villages of Spain.

In our recent trip through the south of Ciudad Real we have had as one of the first objectives the visit of Villanueva de los Infantes, a town that is located southeast of this province of Castilla-La Mancha, south of Manzanares.

If you come from Madrid on the A4, arriving at Villanueva you will pass through San Carlos del Valle, a small village located on the route of the old Camino Real, where you should stop to see its charming Plaza Mayor, a monumental complex dating from the early seventeenth century.

In a first visit to Villanueva de los Infantes, it is striking how well the original architectural configuration of its historic center has been preserved, as you will not see buildings taller than others or modern apartment houses.

The coat of arms of Villanueva de los Infantes was granted in 1421 by the Infante Enrique. It represents the cross of the Order of Santiago with a castle and a lion, alluding to the kingdoms of Castile and Leon; and two coats of arms of the House of Aragon alluding to the Infante Enrique (brother of Alfonso V of Aragon).

The most important rivers are the Jabalón, a tributary of the Guadiana which rises 20 km from Villanueva de los Infantes in Los Ojos de Montiel (Montiel) and the Azuer which rises in the municipality of Villahermosa, in the heart of Campo de Montiel.

Villanueva de los Infantes belongs, due to its latitude, to the Mediterranean climate characterized by seasonal temperatures. This climate is influenced by the fact that it is located in the interior of the Iberian Peninsula and on the plateau, at an altitude of 890 meters above sea level.
