La Piscina Municipal

Inexplicably, we had never visited Alcalá's splendid municipal open-air pool until a week ago.  Now we are there every day.  So much less hassle than driving 50 km to the beach!

The 50m pool is open during the school summer holidays, from mid-June till mid-September, between 1 pm and 7 pm every day except Mondays.  Entrance is around €2, a little more at weekends.  There is a separate pool for toddlers, a cafe-bar selling drinks and snacks, and plenty of shade amongst the pine trees to picnic or relax after your swim.  Everything is spotlessly clean and there are a couple of lifeguards to make sure people behave themselves.

The pool is located at the bottom of the town near the El Prado housing estate, by the roundabout at the junction between the CA6200 and the A2304.  There is plenty of space to park.  You can walk there in ten minutes from the town centre, but be warned - walking back up the hill is only for the young, fit or insane.
