The drought has exposed the ruins of the Royal Site of La Isabela. This old seaside resort, a holiday place for kings, was submerged when the Buendía reservoir was built.
The drought in Spain has exposed the ruins of the Real Sitio de La Isabela, a spa town, known since ancient times for its medicinal waters, which was a holiday place for the Spanish monarchs.
La Isabela was submerged in the 1950s, when the Buendía reservoir was built.
The ruins were visible some summers, but the drought of this 2023 is being especially significant, despite the rains and storms of the last month.
The Buendía reservoir, located between Cuenca and Guadalajara, is only 22% full.
