Original title

Viaje a la Alcarria

A famous travel book by Camilo José Cela where his offers his impressions on the Alcarria landscape.
 

The work was published in 1948 and was the first and most famous of Cela’s travel books. An unsettled man, Cela covered in his well-trodden journeys much of Spain, leaving a testament to his experiences in books such as this. Here he travelled the paths, villages and landscape of Alcarria in Castile-La Mancha. The book offered Cela’s impressions, thoughts and this chats with locals. All written in a prose mixing a realist and comic tone. 

The Alcarria must be one of the author’s favourite spots since he published New Journey to the Alcarria in 1987.
