Visit Alcalá de Henares

Alcalá de Henares, one of the most important towns in the history of Spain, is just 30km from Madrid. This town near Madrid, birthplace of the illustrious Miguel de Cervantes, author of “Don Quixote”, and home to one of the most prestigious universities in Spain, has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Its rich monumental heritage, formed by churches, convents and university buildings, gives us a glimpse of life in Castilia during the Spanish Golden Age. 

After gathering at the Monument to Felipe IV in Plaza de Oriente, depart from Madrid in the direction of the native city of Miguel de Cervantes. Once there, begin to visit Alcalá de Henares and learn how the rich historical and artistic heritage of this city is reflected in its imposing monuments, among which you will see the Cathedral of the Holy Children, the Palace of Laredo, the picturesque Calle Mayor, or the centennial University. Visit Alcalá de Henares in this half-day tour and discover its history, highlights and hidden gems with your experienced guide. The pace is much slower than that of Madrid, making it a relaxing escape from the bustling capital.
