Fuentealbilla

Fuentealbilla is situated to the northeast of the province of Albacete and in the middle of the region of La Manchuela.The area it occupies is mainly flat in its northern half, becoming more hilly towards the south, in the foothills known as Sierra de Las Carboneras, its highest point being the cerro(hill)of El Aguila (768m).Corresponding to this division, the northern area is mainly farm land, while the south is sparse scrub, owing to the presence of salts and gypsum that make the growing of crops difficult.In this area there are still some gypsum quarries which were exploited until the last century.
The origin of Fuentealbilla dates from roman times, as can be traced from the archaeological remains that have been found.
The Middle Ages are a dark age for Fuentealbilla exposed to lootings and fights. After the arabs were expelled in 1212, the repopulation of these lands began. Privileges were granted so that people could begin to live in this land. Arabs continued to live in the fields and hamlets which were looted many times.
Fuentealbilla, like many other villages of La Manchuela, belonged to the state of Jorquera, dependent on the Marquesado de Villena. After several mishaps , Fuentealbilla becomes independent in the 19th century.
For centuries cattle farming, specially sheep, was of great importance, a fact which can still be seen in the landscape.A big part of the cattle of Cuenca and Aragón used to come down to these lands to find new pastures.
In Fuentealbilla there is a roman construction konwn as Fuente Grande or Fuente de la Mora. We can see another fountain from the 18th century in the village square and kown as Fuente del Pilar.
Another important building is the church of Santiago, in the barroque style and dating from the 18th century.
Fuentealbilla also has salt pans , possibly roman in origin, and which belonged to the Verasategui family in the 15th century.
