Via Fora, A Guided Tour That's full of Drama
The 12th edition of Alcudia’s dramatized guided tours of the city, Via Fora, started last month. Organized by the Department of Culture and sponsored by the department of culture of the Consell de Mallorca, the first performance was attended by more than 200 people comprising residents, tourists and officials. The audience was taken along the city walls and guided through history, from the 14th to the 20th century, with the use of drama.
The 2015 edition has seen some developments to the programme, which is as follows:
The First Scene is at Porta des Moll: “Building the Walls of the 14th century.”
Second Scene is at the Church of Sant Jaume: Up to the 16th century.
Third scene is at the Porta San Sebastian: Carlos V visits Alcudia, 3 June 1535.
Fourth scene is at the Camino de Ronda and Carrer del Progres to see Knight Asfeld in Alcudia, 1715.
