    El Rey de Espana, Juan Carlos de Borbon.

    Every April, Alcala hosts the Abril de Cervantes - Festival de la Palabra. The Festival is a wide program of cultural activities including exhibitions, film, conferences, concerts, theater, poetry and presentations of books. Towards the end of the month, the king and queen of Spain come to Alcala and give out the Premio Cervantes for literature to a lucky writer. They give out the prize at la Universidad Cisneriana so head out early so you can catch a glimpse of them.

    Singing and drinking in Parque O'Donnell.

    Those days that we couldn't quite make it to the bar we would drink in the Plazas with the kids. Probably my best memories of Alcala were the days that I'd get together with a bunch of friends and pass around a bottle of vodka mixed with Fanta. Oh the memories.
