Welcome to Madrid
Born in France, Puy du Fou is a new kind of theme park featuring spectacular history extravaganza shows. It is the recipient of numerous awards in both Europe and the USA. In 2019 a show inspired by the park opened in the Spanish city of Toledo offering a fascinating journey through the history of Spain.
Following its successful run in 2019, the show titled “El sueño de Toledo” returned on 18 July. Delivered by 200 actors, it once again takes the audience on a journey through 1500 years of history from the reign of Reccared I in the 6th century and the 13th-century Battle of Las Navas de Tolosa through to the Discovery of America and the arrival of the railway in Spain.
Boasting mind-blowing special effects, the new edition of the show will also feature King Al-Mamun’s splendid Crystal Palace emerging from the water, 15 Andalusian horses, 500 new costumes and stunning new choreographies. In 2021 Puy du Fou will offer four shows a day, three period villages, artisan workshops, over 300 animals and 30 hectares of countryside, and a number of eating options. Visitors will also be able to download a free app onto their phones which will offer simultaneous interpretations for the show in both English and French. The whole park will have free Wi-Fi.
