Alarcón, whose name translates as "Alaric's town", is named in honour of its Visigothic founder. It stands on a narrow hill of brown earth encircled by a deep meander of the River Júcar. Its spectacular 13C-14C castle, now a parador, is one of the best examples of military architecture from the Middle Ages.
