About the Tour

We propose you a new adventure to celebrate International Women's Day 2021!: A guided tour that follows in the footsteps of "Women in the history of Alcalá de Henares."

Women who, either in the cultural, social, religious or historical sphere, became the center of attention of their historical stage: women fighters, religious women, witches, queens, princesses, teachers ...
