Albacete city is inspired by modern architecture whilst it also contains an abundance of green and pastoral areas. It also has the lowest amount of pollution compared to all other European cities with a population over 100,000.
Albacete has an airport which is located about 4 miles south of the capital city itself. It started operating as a civilian airport in July 2003, with the first flight heading out to the Balearic Islands. Unfortunately, there are no scheduled services from the airport today as only charter services are available from the airport, so the best way to get around is by car. You can also make the most of the relatively cheap buses, taxi and trains that operate throughout the province.
Albacete is influenced by a Mediterranean climate, with average summer temperatures peeking at nearly 33º C. However, the continental nature of the climate means that you are likely to experience variable weather conditions throughout the course of the year. There is occasional snowfall during the winter, with rainfall mainly concentrated in late spring.
A notable event that takes place every year in Albacete city is the Albacete Fair. It is of International Tourist Interest and takes place between September 7th and September 17th. Incredibly, the population of Albacete triples during these seven days due to the significance of the event.
House prices in Albacete are reasonable in comparison to various other provinces in Spain, with the average property price over the last ten years ranging from 115k to 120k. House prices in the province have fallen over the last year, which could significantly increase the demand for properties in the area.
