Un paseo por Almagro

My friend Emilia and her mother also brought me to the beautiful city of Almagro for a few hours one evening. Almagro, about a quick 30 minute drive from Valdepenas, is an important city for its role in Spanish theater (pardon the pun!). 

We were only there for a couple of hours, but we managed to visit the Corral de Comedias - one of the oldest comedy theaters in Spain that still functions as a theater! It was built toward the end of the 1500s and was reported to be the last open air theater in Spain (there's no roof).  We took a 20 minute audio tour, and then took a stroll through the rest of the city. Enjoy the photos below :)

Lots of baskets in this city

A funny-looking dog!

Such a beautiful little town!
