Ayuntamiento de Alanís

Routes to enjoy in Alanís

Medieval route

The medieval days of Alanís are the festivities that most unite the inhabitants of the village, thanks to which, for the last 17 years, every year all the inhabitants of the village get together to prepare 3 wonderful days, full of activities and celebrations. These festivities are held every year at the end of the summer.

The first stop is the Town Hall Square, where the official opening of these special festivities takes place and where, during the afternoon, there are calligraphy workshops, entertainment and the starting point of the Labyrinth of the Fauna. In the surrounding area, you can enjoy the medieval market and the attractions available such as: the opening of the medieval sports league, the flight of birds of prey and the opening of the street of fire.

Four minutes from the Town Hall Square is La Fuente De Santa Maria, a place where oriental dance comes to life with workshops and a special dance. There is also a world instrument workshop in this square.

If combat sports are your thing, I invite you to take Calle Fernández Espino from the Plaza del Ayuntamiento towards Paseo Alameda del Parral, where you can enjoy fencing classes for children, archery, and also the medieval fencing tournament held there.

Afterwards, to see the medieval theatre and the play “La Venganza de Don Mendo”, head to the Ermida del Parral. Head for the San Juan Chapel, about 350 metres from the starting point.

Finally, at the castle, you can watch the presentation of the Battle of Matamoros and enjoy the closing fireworks display.

It should be noted that the itinerary of these medieval days varies every year, so we invite you to keep an eye on the programme at the end of the summer.
