Culture, art and tradition come together in this city, which has been declared a Historical-Artistic Site. Its main attraction is the 17th-century Corral de Comedias, where Lope de Vega and Tirso de Molina staged their plays. It remains active and is very busy throughout the year, especially in July, when the International Classical Theatre Festival is held. Almagro is also home to the National Theatre Museum.
The best way to explore Almagro is to lose yourself in its narrow streets. The Church of San Agustín, the Fúcares Palace, and the Convent of Asunción de Calatrava are some of the most characteristic historical buildings in the city. If you have time for an excursion to the surrounding areas, don't miss the Tablas de Daimiel National Park.
