Heritage Night will illuminate the Jewish Quarter with 1.500 candles on Saturday 21

Segovia will celebrate Heritage Night for the second year next Saturday 21 mixing dance (Heritage Scene), cultural activities (Live Heritage) and visit the emblematic monuments (Open Heritage). In Heritage Scene, La Cárcel creation center will pick up the contemporary dance show 'Las otros', by the company Mariantònia Oliver. They will work with nine women between the 68 and the 78 years to talk about age-related fragility.

Open Heritage will offer from 20: 00 to 23: 00 hours the day of open doors to the Didactic Center of the Jewish Quarter, the Antonio Machado House Museum, the Royal Mint, the San Andres Gate, the Esteban Vicente Museum, the Torreón de Lozoya, the Palace of Quintanar and the Episcopal Palace.

In the section Live Heritage, the clandestine dinner is the new proposal. Twelve people will be guided without knowing where they are taken or why in order to keep the surprise as the protagonist. De Santos considers it "a unique opportunity because it combines the intangible heritage of gastronomy with the material heritage that does not usually open". An 'photocal'l illustrated with the images of Frida Kahlo, the Machado House Museum and the imp will also be established.

Mariantònia Oliver's workshop will be held on the Santa Columba terrace. In the afternoon the Jewish Quarter will be lit with 1.500 candles to become the background of a puppet session that will represent in four passes 'The Altarpiece of Maese Pedro'. And Antonio Machado's house "will be alive" thanks to the Los Pérez Cabaret concert. Oral narratives will come from the hand of the staging of Jester Sowers in the Garden of Poets. The stories continue with 'Histories and legends', the lives of the characters of the Alcazar told from the same place. In addition, the Artillery Academy will offer a guided tour.

Finally, Hay Festival will join the program in the Plaza de San Martín with 'Voces en la Plaza'. «We welcome people who visit us with all our love. A heritage city is a city of all, ”said the Councilor for Tourism
