  • Plaza Mayor square in Almagro. Ciudad Real

The history of this town in La Mancha is closely linked to the history of the theatre, and is the reason it's known as the 'theatre city'.Read more...

What to see Its Plaza Mayor square with its arcade and wooden balconies stands in the heart of the city, and is the site of some of its most notable buildings: the Corral de Comedias theatre, the National Theatre Museum and the Town Hall. The Corral de Comedias was once –and is still today– the scene of numerous theatre productions, and the old stalls, the stage and the dressing rooms are open to visitors. The National Theatre Museum is a chance to learn more about the history of the theatre in Spain through its collection of costumes, model theatres, and its extensive pictorial and musical archive. The Town Hall contains a tombstone from the Roman era. We also suggest strolling around the Barrio Noble quarter where you'll see palaces such as the Palace of the Counts of de Valparaíso, and stately houses such as the Mayorazgo de los Molina and the Casa del Prior. Theatre and fiestas Each year the Corral de Comedias serves as the main stage in the Almagro International Classical Theatre Festival. For the space of one month the city is transported back to the time of classical dramatists such as Lope de Vega, Tirso de Molina and Calderón de la Barca. Gastronomy Don't leave without trying its famous pickled aubergines –a real delicacy!
