The Market of Don Quixote (2012)

Each year, in Alcalá de Henares (Madrid - Spain), the city where the famous writer Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra was born (author of "Don Qixote"), people organizes a medieval fair in his honour. It usually starts in October 9th, the day when the writer was baptised.

During a week, there are a lot of people dressed with medieval clothes, shops with artesian products, street actors, etc. All this is "The Week of Cervantes", and the neuralgic center is called "The Market of Don Quixote".

Below I'm going to show to you some of my pictures of The Market of Don Quixote 2012.
