Almagro is located in the province of Ciudad Real, in the region of Campo de Calatrava, and has been recognised as being home to historic and artistic heritage. The history of this town in La Mancha is closely linked to the history of theatre, as can be seen in its Corral de Comedias theatre, the National Theatre Museum and the International Festival held here every year.
Almagro, the capital of the Campo de Calatrava region, was closely linked to this religious order, which was of major political significance during the Late Middle Ages. King Ferdinand II of Aragon merged the assets of this military order into the crown of Castile, marking the beginning of the decline of the Calatravan knights, but not of the city. Bankers under Emperor Charles V, such as the Fuggers and the Welsers, settled in the region, contributing to the development of Almagro.
