MEDIEVAL TERUEL 2018
Where and when
Teruel Spain. Europe
The Weddings of Isabel de Segura in Teruel is a medieval festival that takes place in the city of lovers, in the Autonomous Community of Aragon; It is usually held every year on the third weekend of February. They start from Thursday and last until Sunday. In 2018 the Weddings will be celebrated between February 15 and 18.
Teruel is a city of about 35,000 inhabitants located in the Region of the Community of Teruel. The city stands out for its rich Mudejar heritage.
Origin ... some History pills
The origin of this celebration is very current in 1997 when, unexpectedly, the streets of Teruel were occupied by a small group of actors dressed in medieval costumes representing the Wedding of Isabel, mingling among the people.
From there, the wedding of Isabel was growing and improving to reach the current times, where all Teruel (institutions, groups, individuals) participates in one way or another in this party that seeks to be declared of National Tourist Interest.
