A real Renaissance fair



In 1649, King Felipe IV of Spain married Mariana of Austria in the town of Navalcarnero. (Navalcarnero could be translated as "Sheepdale.") The little town still hasn't gotten over this moment of glory. Each year, it recreates the festivities. I went on Sunday and took some photos. You can see more here:
