Because of his career, vocation and above all, his professionalism he is one of the best actors of the Spanish panorama. He has all the registers: pleasant, funny, tragic. This is so on the screen. Because regarding his personal side, his humanity and sense of humour always prevail. He is from Alcalá because of devotion and conviction, because here is the place where he always returns to with his wife and friends. His professional career would be extensive, but it includes milestones that make him a fundamental part of the sentimental Spanish memory.
He was the remembered officer Romerales of Farmacia de Guardia (Spanish TV series), but he also has interpreted unforgettable characters in movies like "Atún y chocolate" (Tuna and Chocolate), "El Lute", "La vida mancha" (Life Stains), "800 balas" (800 Bullets), "El perro del hortelano" (The Dog in the Manger), "Malaventura" or "La noche de los girasoles" (The Night of the Sunflowers). Or in television, in series like "Hombres de Paco" (Paco's Men), "Periodistas" (Reporters), "La forja de un rebelde" (The Forging of a Rebel) or "Escenas de Matrimonio" (Couples' Scenes). In theatre he has done everything and he has also been theatrical producer, naming his company after the place where he looks at life with the Castle as backdrop, this is, Zacatín.
Well, that's a little secret...
My friends like above all toe at, so I take them to Pinichi, Mamma Mia, to Tere's, to Bernardo's, to Bueno's, to La Cochera, to Círculo, to En cá el conde, to La Centenaria... and of course, they don't miss the Feria, but I also try they knew the Castle, Oromana, the Museum, the Centro Park, the mills and all the beautiful places of this village.
Of course, the high number of rivermills.
To Zacatín quarter.
Luckily for all of us who have a heavy bottom to face the uncountable slopes of this village, a wonderful route by the river bank is being prepared which, when it were finished and if it can be kept as beautiful as it seems it is going to be (not everybody appreciates as her/his public assets), it is going to be an authentic luxury for all Alcalá's people.
In don Paulino's Square, at Miguelito's place.
To a Manzanilla wine, a small dish of carne mechá (stuffed meat) and some good olives.
I believe that what has always attracted my attention from this village is the enormous and traditional fondness for painting. It is unusual finding a house that does not have some painter's original pictures; they are also -men and women- amateur painters and painting lovers. It is amazing.
I don't believe it. Furthermore, I believe it is not so fortunately. But I recognize any Alcalá person, even in China, by the way they have to eat olives, whether he or she is form Alcalá or its surroundings: He catches the olive very carefully, takes its to his mouth fearfully, frowns, twists his mouth and finally, he says (throwing the pit contemptuously).-"!!Zapateras!!" You cannot be wrong. He is from Alcalá.
Tell it to me and I will tell you what makes me love Alcalá.
