Long Description:
San Pedro es un municipio español situado al sureste de la península ibérica, en la provincia de Albacete, dentro de la comunidad autónoma de Castilla-La Mancha. Está ubicado en la comarca de la sierra de Alcaraz. Se encuentra a 35 km de la capital provincial.

En 2020 contaba con 1.171 habitantes, según los datos oficiales del INE. Algo más de un centenar reside en las pedanías de Cañada Juncosa, Casas de Abajo y Cuevas del Molino de las Dos Piedras (pedanía que debe su nombre a la presencia de antiguas casas-cueva, excavadas en un cerro).

El término, de gran atractivo natural, queda configurado por un paisaje de vega y monte bajo atravesado por una cañada. En esta cañada se quiso construir una línea férrea que uniría Baeza con Utiel; hoy es conocida como la vía verde.

El casco urbano está dividido en dos barrios: uno viejo, que incluye el Ayuntamiento y la iglesia, y otro en el cual destaca La Peñica. Ambos quedan separados por la vega del río Quéjola.

----------

San Pedro is a Spanish municipality located southeast of the Iberian Peninsula, in the province of Albacete, within the autonomous community of Castilla-La Mancha. It is located in the region of the Sierra de Alcaraz. It is located 35 km from the provincial capital.

In 2020 it had 1,171 inhabitants, according to official INE data. Slightly more than a hundred reside in the districts of Cañada Juncosa, Casas de Abajo and Cuevas del Molino de las Dos Piedras (a district that owes its name to the presence of old cave-houses, excavated in a hill).

The term, of great natural attraction, is configured by a landscape of meadows and scrubland crossed by a ravine. In this ravine they wanted to build a railway line that would link Baeza with Utiel; today it is known as the greenway.

The urban area is divided into two neighborhoods: an old one, which includes the Town Hall and the church, and another in which La Peñica stands out. Both are separated by the valley of the river Quéjola.

Bible verse: Mateo 16:17-19
