Almagro, declared a Historic-Artistic Site, lies in the county of Campo de Calatrava near Ciudad Real. The history of this town in La Mancha is closely linked to the history of the theatre, as you can appreciate in the Open Air Theatre, the National Theatre Museum and the International Festival held every year.
Almagro, capital of Campo de Calatrava, was closely linked to the Calatrava religious order which enjoyed great political importance during the Low Middle Ages. Fernando the Catholic incorporated the goods of this Military Order into the Crown of Castile, beginning the decline of the Calatrava knights, but not of the city. Bankers to the Emperor Carlos V, like the Fuggers and the Welser, settled in this land, which contributed to the development of Almagro.
