ABOUT ABADÍA DE LOS TEMPLARIOS
Abadía de los Templarios is an impressive tourist complex on 100,000 m² of natural land surrounded by the Sierra de Francia and Natural Park Las Batuecas. It features fully equipped facilities that make this idyllic location the perfect place for all sorts of visitors, from corporate incentives and conventions to romantic getaways and family holidays.
The complex design combines medieval style with the traditional architecture of the La Alberca region. Master craftsmen from the area have spent a decade leaving their mark with local materials like granite, wood, wrought iron, stained-glass windows, rustic exposed brick, lime and pigments. You can see this typical architecture of the region in the vaults, towers, stained-glass windows, moulding and coffered ceilings at the hotel. In contrast, you'll be pleasantly surprised to discover the modern, welcoming décor in the rooms.
The town of La Alberca is located in the heart of the Sierra de Francia mountains, 1,048 metres above sea level. Since 1940, it has held the title of Historic-Artistic Grouping, for its original architectural traditions and the notable interest of its popular and religious festivals. In addition to the cultural heritage, it is also teeming with natural richness in the Batuecas Valley, with its cave paintings, and the Peña de Francia mountain.
The culture and tradition of the region are an important aspect that makes a visit to any of its towns even more enriching. Religious festivals are held with great fanfare, with age-old popular dances and music that are a wonder for the senses. Food-lovers will delight in the local artisanal produce, including honey, wafers, select Iberian cured meats and wines.
