What is exactly the Historical Reenactment?.

It’s a faithful reproduction of the customs and the day after of a certain period.

In this case, we focus on the perios between 1350 and 1360,XIV century. The ‘recreators’ will come to life, behaving and acting in a way that allows the spectator to be immersed in the historical period and experience a highly authentic reproduction of historical events.

This re-enactment will be framed within a historical context that coincides with the War of the 2 Pedros – Pedro I “The Cruel” of Castile and Pedro IV “The Ceremonious” of Aragon. This conflict is accompanied by other historical events such as the First Castilian Civil War and the 100 Years War.

Amongst the activities you’ll discover through our historical re-enactments are music, dance, military life, games and training, medicine, handicrafts, palace life, different guilds and trades, battles, attacks…in a nutshell.
