In this case, we focus on the period between 1350 and 1360, in full s. XIV, and those responsible for carrying out this recreation, are the recreationalists, that is, specialists in giving life to all kinds of characters of the Middle Ages.
The central axis of these days are the rebellions between Pedro I "El Cruel" and Enrique II of Castile for the possession of the Castle of Almodóvar.
Among the activities that can be enjoyed during the days are falconry, music concerts, assaults on the castle, medieval dances, battles, among others.
Live from within a siege to the fortress, position yourself by one of the two armies, observe how the war begins and enjoy the victory with a big party.
It is the perfect alternative to come as a family and / or a group of friends and dive in the middle of the Middle Ages, alternating with the inhabitants of the time and living in turn, their own customs.
