What's Guadalajara Like?
There have been settlements in and around Guadalajara since Roman times, but the city itself was founded in the 8th century as part of the Arabic province of Al-Andalus (Guadalajara means "valley of stones" in Arabic). The Andalusians left many monuments behind (be sure to ask your friendly hotel staff for maps and guidebooks), including the historic bridge over the Henares River, which still stands. The powerful Mendoza family was a prominent dynasty after the Christian reconquest of Spain and they left many beautiful buildings behind them, including the Palacio de los Duques del Infantado. The Palacio was heavily damaged during the Spanish Civil War, but the delicate Gothic carvings on the main facade have been beautifully restored and the Palacio is now home to the Museo Provincial. The Mendozas also built the Iglesia de San Francisco, which houses their splendid mausoleum. Another popular Guadalajara church is the Iglesia de Santiago, which has a Gothic chapel built by Renaissance architect and sculptor Alonso de Covarrubias.
Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Guadalajara
Guadalajara lies just outside Spain's scenic serrania, a mountainous region filled with forests, pastures, and deep gorges. The serrania has many popular natural wonders including the Ciudad Encantada (the Enchanted City), which is a group of limestone formations that has eroded into shapes that make them look like long-forgotten buildings. Also not to be missed are the gorgeous rock pools and waterfalls of the Nacimiento del Rio Cuervo and a breathtaking river gorge near Villalba de la Sierra.
