    This structure is the only surviving example from the 17th century, constructed in 1628. Comedies were performed here during the Spanish Golden Age. Corrals were banned in the 18th century, many such places falling into disuse. The city bought the structure in 1954. It is again used as a theater. It hosts every July the International Classical Theater Festival. For its historic role, it has apparently been nominated by Spain to be a World Heritage Site. Good luck!

    A rather large one, you are struck by the shade of green most prominently featured on first and second floors of surrounding buildings and the backs of chairs in restaurants. The Ayuntamiento anchors the plaza at one end. Near the end of the other is a statue of the city namesake. The usual collections of shops and restaurants are to be found in the arcades on two sides. As late as 1785 it held bull fights.

    We popped in here on Sunday during the free entry period after we visited the Corral de Comedias Theatre.

    The museum is a modern museum inside an old building which works through the ages of history of theatre in spain from its earliest periods (roman) to modern day. Start on the ground floor and work up to the top floor to following the exhibits in order.

    The upper floor of the old cloisters has some interesting recreations of old sound effects machines that you can try yourself to generate wind, rain, thunder effects. There are also a few old displays of wave and scene changing mechanisms.

    There are information cards in English available at the start of each room.

    We spent about 45 minutes here in total.

    Dating from the second half of the 19th c, it has some 800 seats over three levels. It functioned as a theater until the 1950’s and was restored to theatrical use in 1989. Its style is neo-Greco-Roman. Like many such structures, it has had other uses over the years, including as a ballroom and a cinema. I was only able to see the exterior of the building.

    Unusual architecture which is crossover of a number of styles. Not quite Spanish, not quite gothic. But very interesting and worth a visit

    A wonderful insight to old traditional Spanish life and work. The tour is guided by a lovely Spanish gentleman who will tell you all about the work tools, the bodega, the cheese making along with many other things. The artefacts have all been privately collected and lovingly made into this wonderful museum. Well worth a visit even if you don't speak any Spanish you can understand what you are seeing,

    I spent there a week for erasmus project and had my lectures there. I totally adored it cuz we were the only visiors and the whole hotl was ours. However, I wasn't satisfied with wifi. If you are at a hotel you are supposed to have wifi anywhere, especially if you are on a business trip. Wifi was ok in rooms, but at conferance halls it wasn't working.

    This is a beautiful building (and also had the only stork we saw the whole week were were in the region) and the history is well-presented with an audio-guide. There are lots of interesting details and, if you look closely, a huge crack letting in daylight on the wall of the main staircase (which is closed to the public). However it was disappointing to me that it is only a shell - I wasn't exactly expecting there to be a functioning convent (although there still are, in other churches) - but even the beautiful big church isn't used any more and can't even be visited - it is kept in a pristine and empty state and can be viewed from the gallery.

    We contacted them because we wished to discover the world of exquisite Spanish oils. As the required minimum is of 6 people we were offered the opportunity to join another group and changed the tour for a wine experience. Although we've already attended similar tours in the past, we've been surprised by the originality of the tour; we drove through the vineyeards and olive trees with our own cars and discovered the plantations while receiving explanations about the specificities of the domaine and landscape using a talky-walky. We got our first wine tasting in the middle of the vineyeards enjoying a beautiful landscape and explanations of the wine we were discovering. The second tasting was definitely a surprise, as we could get a glimpse of what a wine tastes like during its production phase. On top of this, we ended the visit with another wine and olive oil tasting, paired with local food productos. All in all, I definitely recommend the experience.
