A dramatic month-long theatrical tradition indeed, each and every November.

Don Juan Tenorio

The Don Juan of literary history makes a move on Alcalá.

From October 31, All Hallow's Eve, through November, all the historic downtown's a stage in the city of Alcalá de Henares, with a long-running presentation of José Zorrilla's classic 1844 version of the Don Juan story. There are usually two performances, on October 31st and November 1st, both at 7PM in the Bishop's Orchard of the grandiose Archbishop's Palace. Officially declared a "Celebration of Regional Touristic Interest", the event has been staged since 1984 and nowadays attracts some 40,000 spectators. In addition, the Alcalá city government continues the cultural-theatrical vibe with "Nights of Don Juan", tours of the old quarter incorporating actors and passages from the play - a unique way of getting to know this fascinating little Castillian city and its landmarks, customs and cuisine.
