ENG: Information about events and excursions

9th Sept. Arrival day. Visit to typical fiestas of Spain: Moorish and Christians. It is a historical parade of both christian and muslim armies that fought for 700 years in Spain for domination of the country. It lasts about 2h, and the best reason to see them is the beautiness of the costumes, the music (medieval military marches), and the groups of dancers (Spanish music and muslim dancing groups).

 

9th September (18-02:00h): Visit to Chinchilla castle + church AND Moorish & Christians parade in Caudete.

 
(trip will be done if there are more than 30 people interested)

Visit on the 11th (16 – 21h): Alcala del Jucar. The most touristic village in Albacete. We will walk along the Roman bridge, up to the narrows streets (which has two of the narrowest streets, just 75cm wide), and visit to the castle. Walking down we will enter the 150m cave of the devil, which crosses the mountain and has a terrace on the border of a cliff, where we will have a drink. Free time and come back to the feria of Albacete to enjoy the night.

Visit to 12th (included in the registration): experimental deer farm and a deer game estate. In the photograph a deer from the experimental deer farm. To the right, one of the talks will be about how mineral composition, mechanical properties, structure and histology of the antlers can be a diagnostic tool to detect nutrient deficiencies and improve management. A photograph with a polarized light shows in blue an antler of a well-fed deer, and in yellow and red, a deer with nutrient deficiencies.

Visit to 12th: experimental deer farm and a deer game estate (2000 has in size). At night, outdoor concert on candle lights (photo of scenario above: from Vivaldi’s Spring to Pirates of the Caribean).
