Thing to do: Semana Cervantina in Alcalá de Henares

Between the 5th till the 26th of October, Alcalá de Henares is celebrated the annual Semana Cervantina with a lot of events and activities to enjoy Cervantes.

The author Miguel de Cervantes (author of El quijote between others) was born in Alcalá de Henares. The city celebrates his birthday, 9 October, every year and organizes an annual Cervantes festival.

One of the most popular events in this period is the representation of the theater Don Juan in an open air space (free) – Reserve the 31st of October or the 1st of November to see the representation of Don Juan

Alcalá is located 35 kilometres (22 miles) northeast of Madrid and you shall find different ways to get there (train, bus and car). We shall prepare a thing to do day in Alcalá soon, but don´t  miss this Semana Cervatina to have a look.

Alcalá is also a great place for tapas :)
