"Almagro" Almagro by Redang

Almagro Travel Guide: 18 reviews and 44 photos

Almagro is a lovely town with a great heritage. The city was under the control of the Order of Calatrava and it's in La Mancha, where the famous novel El Quijote took place.

Some other towns Don Quijote "visited", are Villanueva de los Infantes, El Toboso and Campo de Criptana.

Not to be missed:
- Plaza Mayor (main pic)
- Corral de Comedias (second pic)

...and some other spots.

Almagro is about 200 kms. away from Madrid, and I'd recommend a visit. Maybe it's quite far for a daytrip (although it's doable) but it's a good idea to overnight there on the way to Andalucía (see the related transportation tip).

    Santi, lovely little page about this Spanish gem. It is always good to know that the distance between Vaduz and Almago 1.839 km is. *winkygrin*

    Great that the Corral de Comedias has retained its original 17th century structure and is still used as a theater for presentation of the classics.
