The Valdemembra river of Villanueva de la Jara offers a naturally evocative landscape.

Among the natural resources is the Valdemembra River in Villanueva de la Jara. The work carried out has considerably improved the environment and significantly embellished the river, a source of life, passing through the town.

The Valdemembra River Fluvial Park in Villanueva de la Jara

For decades, the surrounding plain of the Valdemembra River was used for agriculture and this generated a silting up of the riverbed. The creation of the river park has made progress in the elimination of vegetation. This improvement in the creation of the fluvial park has brought the beautiful Valdemembra of Villanueva de la Jara out of the shadows and has increased its landscape tourism offer.

Therefore, the reality of the Valdemembra River as it passes through Villanueva de la Jara, after the improvements made, has allowed for the creation of bridges and the restoration of the wash houses. These elements are very much appreciated by the men and women of Jara.

Where does the Valdemembra river come from and where does it go?

It is not a small river. Rises in Solera de Gabaldón -in the province of Cuenca- and flows into the town of Mahora, in the province of Albacete.

It is when it passes through Villanueva de la Jara that it reaches its greatest beauty. The river decorates this visual environment that complements La Jara, forming a set of high interest.

This tributary of the Júcar flows through the Manchuela Conquense, where the most beautiful town is La Jara.
