“Medieval Times Show is a night of feasting and fighting” – As a guest of the king we felt like we were back in the 11th century. We were first greeted by King Alfonso and princess Esperanza and then received a colored crown that corresponded to our knight that would be fighting for the king. Trumpets sounded and announced the opening of the Grand Ceremonial Arena. At once legions of maids began to serve us a four course meal. Savory garlic bread, steaming hot vegetable soup in pewter bowls, roasted chicken, spare rib, seasoned potato and pastry fit for a royal family. The legend had it that the kingdom had been threatened by invaders and we were in the middle of a fight to the death for the princess. Again trumpets sounded, knights in full armor on magnificent horses began to charge at each other brandishing 10 foot lances. What a shower of sparks, and sounds of metal against metal made by swords, shields and that deadly giant whirling bola.
