MountainsCastilla La Mancha is the central part of the Spain, best known to foreigners as the land of Don Quijote. It largely consists of flat plains; however, there are some mountains - notably in the eastern provinces of Guadalajara and Cuenca.
SceneryCastilla La Mancha is most flat plains which can become quiet repetitive; there is not a great variety of scenery here. The mountains to the north of Guadalajara are the most picturesque part, but even here it is mostly sparse forests and barren plains rather than spectacular peaks and green mountains.
The region has little traffic in general, although the roads do tend to get busier the closer that you get to Madrid. The areas around the five provincial capitals - Albacete, Ciudad Real, Toledo, Guadalajara and Cuenca are also noticeably busier.
