Beautiful Castile-La Mancha: Home &Away discoveries

Beautiful Castile-La Mancha: Home &Away discoveries

Weekly Roundup

This season, my home team CD Torrijos is located in the city of Torrijos in the Community of Castile-La Mancha. I think of Castile-La Mancha as an apple in the middle of Spain that someone took a bite out of . The bite, being Madrid.

The City of Torrijos in Castile-La Mancha

It’s a large geographical area, but thinly populated. As a result, our games are spread far and wide. It is nothing to spend 2 hours from our stadium in Torrijos to travel to the game.

La Familia

Being attached to the municipality of Torrijos means having a city of supporters. The population is under 15,000 however, so it is a modest sized club in the province of Toledo. For a month over summer I was fortunate to stay in Hotel Castilla, a regional hotel that has a popular and very reasonably-priced restaurant which is a drawcard for tourists and locals. They have an excellent monthly rate but best of all, will treat you like family and make your stay comfortable.

Round 7

Playing at home this week I was able to get the full second half. While I was pleased with my performance, the result ended as a nil all draw. If you would like to watch our home games, the game is available through the club’s streaming service.
