Abengibre

Abengibre is situated in the centre of the region of La Manchuela, in the northeast of Albacete. Geographically this location is characterised by the valley of the Arroyo (stream) de Abengibre which crosses the area from north to south and whose seasonal waters come from the region of Cuenca and end in the river Jucar when it passes Jorquera, a very short distance from Abengibre. This fact enhances the landscape of the village and favours the appearance of singular ecological elements, as well as historical and etnographic ones.
The origins of this village are not clear, although there is no doubt as to its arab ancenstry, due to important remains of this civilization. Nevertheless, pre-roman findings point towards a possible iberian origin. Among these findings the so-called Treasure of Abengibre stands out, a collection of silver dishes that were found by chance in 1934 by a farmer while he was working the land,and that with their more than 2500 years have thrown light on our knowledge of this civilazation , and , specially its writing.
There have also been found traces of roman occupation, such as steles,etc.
Abenjibre belonged to the state of Jorquera until it became independent in the 19th century.
The modern village springs from two different parts: Abenjibre, the main part built around the church of San Miguel, and a secondary part, Casas de Torres, which was independent until the 19th century when it became part of Abenjibre.
Abenjibre is mainly a farming community, vine growing being the main crop.It has also been traditionally a village of travelling vendors, although this occupation is not so common today.On the other hand there has been a growth of industry,mainly in the wood, meat processing and legumes sectors.
Its parish church is in the barroque style and dates from the 18th century. Inside the church there is a 17th century painting which shows the archangel Saint Michael and which is influenced by the Sevillana school.
