The Almagro International Classical Theatre Festival, held every year in July, has become a must-attend summer event that gathers over 60,000 audience members to enjoy a one-of-a-kind cultural experience.
The Almagro International Festival of Classical Theatre Foundation has been celebrated in this historical town of La Mancha for 41 years and with the passing of times it has turned to become an unavoidable event for the lovers of theatre, as it is a unique cultural experience in the world.
The Baroque legacy and especially, the Spanish Golden Century, meet in the Festival an ideal framework to update, revive and still be present, year after year, in the contemporary national and international scene.
Around 40.000 people come together each edition, to help in the numerous shows, events and activities that are scheduled during the month of July, turning this beautiful city into a huge stage with verses and comedians from all around the world that are mixed with the spectators and tourists and then is when the magic happens everywhere. In Almagro everything is possible…
The discovery in 1954 of Corral de Comedias was the starting point of our Festival. Almagro completes her impressive architectural heritage with an emblematic Baroque building, in which theatre performances have a place in the 16th and 17th century and that, nowadays, is the best preserved of all the Spanish Golden Century.
Since then, 41 editions full of comedy, colour, mess, claps, drama, summer, tragedy and emotion have been organized.
