Fodor's Review

Standing almost as it did in 1628 when it was built, this theater has wooden balconies on four sides and the stage at one end of the open patio. During the golden age of Spanish theater—the time of playwrights Pedro Calderón de la Barca, Cervantes, and Lope de Vega—touring actors came to Almagro, which prospered from mercury mines and lace making. The Corral is the site of an international theater festival (www.festivaldealmagro.com) each July. Festival tickets may be purchased with a credit card through Tele-Entrada (926/882458) or with cash (after mid-May) at Palacio de los Medrano on San Agustín 7.
