Discover Daimiel

Home Daimiel

Daimiel is a town that traces its origins back to the Bronze Age,as is attested by the archaeological site of the Motilla del Azuer.


The real socio-economic development began in the 15th century, the result of which was the building of the church of Santa María la Mayor, with Gothic style.


Nowadays, when strolling through the streets of Daimiel we can admire different examples of architecture dating back several centuries and reflecting different architectural styles. 


Another place worth discovering is the Navaseca Lagoon, located a few kilometres from the town centre, it has become a refuge for fauna in the most difficult times for the National Park.


But undoubtedly Daimiel is known for the Las Tablas de Daimiel National Park, one of the sixteen national parks declared in Spain because it is a characteristic ecosystem of La Mancha, known as the "tablas fluviales". Its formation is due to the overflowing of the Guadiana and Gigüela rivers in their middle stretches, favoured by the lack of slope in the terrain.
