Albacete History and Attractions: A modern industrial city with a population of around 150,000, Albacete is the capital of a province of the same name, located in the Castilla-La Mancha region of Spain. Taking its name from the Arabic al-basit (the plain), it has some history, though mostly grew up after the mosquito infested swamps in the area, were drained in the 19th century.

Albacete’s cathedral was started in the early 16th century and warrants a visit for its Ionic columns and Renaissance alterpiece.
