Camelot (1967) Coca

Camelot is of course a symbol of the ideal illusion of a perfect England; merrie as mead, literate and loving it, and based upon a rigid class system where everybody knows their place and accepts it; or would do if the Knights weren’t so keen on warfare.

There is of course no more an authentic vision of that perfect England than Spain, where Spanish castle magic makes Tintagel look like a pile of rubble and Glastonbury Tor a mere pimple on the bottom of ancient Wessex.

Cocais located 50 kilometres from the provincial capital, and its XV Century Mudéjar castle is Camelot in the musical of the same name starring Richard Harris and Vanessa Redgrave, whose champion Lancelot makes occasional use of the even more famous Alcázar of Segovia.
