Puy du Fou has just presented a new leisure concept for its park in Toledo in the form of ‘The Legendary Nights of Puy du Fou Spain’, a night plan with limited places for Friday 19 and 26 August from 6:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. and under the starry blanket of the La Mancha night. During these selected dates, the historic park will open its doors at sunset with its most iconic shows: ‘A Pluma y Espada’, ‘El Último Cantar’, ‘Beyond the Ocean Sea’ and ‘The Wander of the Centuries’. In addition, visitors will walk paths and paths and will be able to enjoy the inns and mansions as if it were daytime.
Among the novelties of these ‘Nights of legend’ is the performance of the guitarist from Puebla Real, who, to the sound of well-known melodies, will liven up the hustle and bustle of this medieval town. In addition, the visitor will exclusively get to know the new itinerant show ‘Stories of Yesteryear’, where friendly characters from other times accompany the visitor on their journey through the centuries and through memory.
The Pimp of the Mentidero de Zocodover, who does not miss a good gossip; Joaquín Rojas, the Muleteer, who has been traveling the roads and paths of Spain since he was a young man; Andrés Gómez, el Barquillero, a handsome chulapo from Madrid who sells wafers and invites the little ones to play roulette or Federico Trasmontes, raised in the neighborhood of San Justo and Spanish amateur cycling champion, are some of these nomadic characters now also present at night. To all this we must add the concerts in El Arrabal, which traditionally last until the wee hours of the morning.
It is a product with very limited places and it is necessary to buy in advance on the park’s website or by phone.
the future of the park
Puy du Fou landed in Spain in August 2019 with its first great night show: ‘The Dream of Toledo’, with more than 120,000 spectators. In March 2021, the doors of the great daytime park opened with a spectacular world to travel through time. In 2021, more than 600,000 visitors attended its five shows and its four historic towns with more than 20 inns, taverns and mansions, and workshops in which artisans practice their traditional trades, explaining their arts and crafts to visitors.
The French company has invested 183 million euros in this first phase of the park and has generated 700 direct jobs and more than 1,000 indirect jobs. His plans for the future go through the expansion of the investment of more than 242 million euros until 2028 in works to improve and expand the park. In the template there are more than 85 arts and crafts (from tailors to architects, going through animal caretakers, security teams and swordsmith craftsmen).
