Syitä Alcalán vierailulle on monia!
The home town to the notable author Miguel de Cervantes. A lively student city, which has its long history as the world's first planned university city. It's also one of the oldest towns in Spain, whose centre is an UNESCO world heritage site.
There's many reasons to visit Alcalá!
Kaupungissa oltiin juuri järjestämässä keskiaikaisia markkinoita, kun saavuimme sinne. Lippuja oli valehtelematta kaikkialla ja ihmisiä kuhisi joka paikassa, kun he pystyttivät myyntikojuja. Pienen kiertelyn jälkeen päädyimme söpöön kahvilaan nimeltä Bamby, jossa iski valinnanvaikeus kun yritettiin tilata jotain makeaa- Itse päädyin oreo-banoffeeseen, joka oli - yllätys, yllätys - taivaallista. Sen jälkeen matka jatkui ja bongasimme Cervantesin synnyinkodin sekä Sancho Panzan ja Don Quijoten istuskelemassa sen edustalla.
The city was in the middle of organizing its middle age market when we arrived. There were flags literally everywhere and its streets were bustling with people who were putting up their stands. After a little walk, we went to this cute café called Bamby where I had a difficult time choosing which cake I'd like to have. I ended up ordering oreo banoffee, which has to be one of the best ones I've tried! After that, our journey continued and we spotted the birth house of Cervantes as well as Sancho Panza and Don Quijote sitting in front.
That's what this city in the surroundings on Madrid looks like. As I earlier said to Elli, I could imagine myself living here. This is a beautiful and small but nonetheless bustling city with lots of students and good transport connections to Madrid.
