During the first weekend in October, the city of Burgos (Castilla y León) transforms into an enormous medieval scene to pay homage to one of the most iconic heroes of Spanish history: El Cid Campeador.
The event, El Cid Weekend, is a cultural and culinary experience and tourist attraction with over a hundred activities, such as historic re-enactments, processions, workshops, guided tours, tournaments, lectures, plays and musical performances, suitable for all ages, some of which are especially intended for families (the event has been awarded the Family Tourism Seal).The night-time procession by torchlight, the colourful medieval market (with craftwork and food stalls), the scene-setting of the encampment on the banks of the River Arlazón (including representations of Medieval professions) and the acclaimed swordfights and jousting tournaments are some of the attractions during these two days.
