You can travel to the past without leaving the region thanks to the dramatized routes and visits that in a timely manner are performed in some municipalities in Madrid. If you are looking for a different plan, this week we propose you to stroll in Alcala de Henares through a theatrical route, and know the history of Nuevo Baztán thanks to two unique visits. Are you ready? Let's start!
Dramatized route in Alcalá de Henares
Every Saturday in August and until 2nd September we suggest you to visit the town of Alcala de Henares with the protagonist of the most universal novel of Cervantes, Don Quixote de la Mancha.
In two passes, at 11am and 12.30pm, the ingenious hidalgo and his faithful squire Sancho will show you the most emblematic places of Alcalá, declared a World Heritage City by UNESCO, which saw the birth of the creator of these characters with the route 'En un lugar llamado Alcalá'.
To attend this free activity, get your ticket the days of show from 10.30am until all vacancies are filled. Hurry up, because seating is limited!
Dramatized visits in Nuevo Baztán
If you still want more, the Interpretation Centre of Nuevo Baztán offers its classic visits in two versions, day and night, which in a funny way allows the public to know who was D. Juan de Goyeneche, creator and promoter of Nuevo Baztán, as well as the splendour and decadence of a unique urban experiment in Spain.
Every Sunday during the month of September at 12pm, you can learn about the love story between Martín Irigoyen, an officer of the glass and fine glass factory and Paquita Abaurrea, daughter of the treasurer of Nuevo Baztán, as well as get into the daily and family life of the 18th century, under the title 'Entre fábricas y palacios: un paseo por Nuevo Baztán'.
On the other hand and after the summer break, on Saturday October 7 at 9pm, you can be witness of the adventures of Juan de Goyeneche, with his friend Churriguera in 'Goyeneche en apuros', which will culminate with a pyrotechnic show.
Both visits are free, but the capacity is limited so if you are interested in attending, don't forget to register previously on the phone 918736238 or by sending an email to
