Alcalá de Henares is such a wonderful Spanish city. There is so much history and literature and life to experience there. I always felt safe, and I never felt like there wasn't something fun to do around the next corner. Try tinto de verano and patatas bravas in the Plaza de Cervantes, you will not regret it. Get a café con leche and visit the Universidad de Alcalá where classes about Don Quijote mesmerize students like me from around the world. I highly recommend you give this dreamy place a visit!
