If you already know Alcalá de Henares and you are almost an expert, we propose you to go into one of the most unknown areas of the city, the Christian quarter, on this tour. We will begin our route in the Plaza de los Santos Niños, where two of our protagonists, the children Justo and Pastor, were beheaded. Next, we will look up to discover the Roman inscriptions hidden in the Magistral-Cathedral, to then walk through the ancient "red light district" of Alcala, revealing the most unknown ins and outs of the old mancebía.
The War of Independence in the region of the Henares river will also be one of the topics that we will address, from the hand of one of its most popular and beloved heroes in the Cervantes population: the Empecinado.
We will discover several convents full of history, curiosities and traditions that are still alive, while we follow the trail of duels, fights and murders that took place in dark alleys, cases of witchcraft, renowned inquisitorial processes and even the origin of the most ancient of the world
