Cosa farete

The first stop is to see an original Complutensian Polyglot Bible which has huge historical value. This version of the Bible was the basis for later translations such as William Tindale's and the King James' versions. Later we'll head to the university that made Alcalá famous in the 16th century. You'll learn about how it was Cardinal Cisneros dream to make Alcalá into a university city. We will then head into the old town Alcalá which at one time had a population of over 5000 Jews before they were expelled in 1492. This area has some fascinating stories that even many locals have never heard. Next stop is Cervantes house. Cervantes was to Spanish literature as Shakespeare was to English. But that isn't all they had in common. Find out more at this stop. Now we will pop over to where Christopher Columbus met Queen Isabella for his 1st meeting to discuss his journey across the pond. Here you will also discover how from this staunchly Catholic country Protasism was born, literally, in this palace. Finally, you will learn about the importance of an endangered bird that has found its home in this charming town.

Ulteriori informazioni su Kim

Kim

Kim and Cristina have spent years in their free time studying the history of areas of Spain that many people have never even heard about, including Spaniards. With husbands & kids in tow, they have found hidden corners, learned about the local legends and the interesting stories that often get left untold. Together they were trained and participated in hosting and touring guests for a large international event which springboarded into them offering the tours, including their favourite spots such as Alcalá, on their own. They show their guests things that they would never see by simply walking through the streets of Alcalá on their own, and tell stories about the people who used to live in Alcala who shaped not only the history of Spain but in some cases, the history of the world. They keep the tours interesting and fun for all ages.

Altri consigli

Alcalá de Henares is only 25 minutes by train (RENFE) from Madrid's Atocha train station. (NOT METRO-- this is the inter-city train called RENFE) Take the C2 line direction Guadalajara or Alcala de Henares. Get off at the Alcala Central estación.
