Living in Villafranca is synonymous with enjoying nature to the fullest, delighting in our landscapes and admiring the wonderful flora and fauna that surrounds us.


The Pradera, the heart of Villafranca.

La Pradera is the most emblematic area and the most representative example of what it means to live in Villafranca del Castillo. It crosses the community from north to south and is made up of a large green area almost 2 km long and 100m wide, covering an area of ​​200,000 m2 with abundant trees, which encloses and shades a wide central path and the perimeter pavements that border it.

Without a doubt, it is the area most valued by its neighbors; an ideal space for strolling, walking your dog, riding a bike or going for a run.
