TOLEDO CIGARRALES

Cigarral Santo AngelThe Cigarrales are beautiful constructions blending rustic and monastery architecture adapted to the rough Toledo landscape. The buildings are surrounded by paved terraces and courtyards covered by flowers and trees.

They were considered, from the Renaissance, rest residences and an external sign of social prestige, suitable for gatherings of priests and noble people, intellectuals and artists. They became prestigious centres of creativity and knowledge during the Golden Century.

Turned into a tourist resource, they are highly suitable places for events and any kind of celebrations. The Cigarrales offer a natural environment, marvellous views over the city, beautiful buildings and high gastronomic level. They are a superb option to celebrate any event.

GOOD PROTOCOL PRACTICES

This page gives a series of suggestions to make your event and your host role successful. We will cover in this series the most frequent questions about the organization of any event.

Should you have any specific problem or query, please write to us and we will make every effort to help.

THE ARRIVAL OF GUESTS

A good host must follow these protocol suggestions:

  • The hosts receive the guests at the main door that opens onto the assembly hall.
  • If any of the guests is not known to the others, the host should arrange introductions.
  • The guests should arrive a few minutes before the appointed time. This allows for introductions.  A person should accompany the guest to his or her assigned place. The traditional moment in lunches and dinners is the aperitif that should last for about half an hour
  • Take care of what is to be served. It is better to serve little but delicious than a lot with lower quality.
  • In lunches and dinners, if a guest does not arrive on time, the aperitif can be extended for ten more minutes. After that, the host must guide the attendants to sit at the table(s). The dining set for the guest who haven't arrived should be left on the table until the main dish is served, the moment when the set is to be removed.
  • Be alert regarding the weather, especially in winter. A wardrobe service should be organized to take care of garments and objects.
  • Suitable parking facilities must be indicated. A small map indicating the nearest public parking lot or the zone where the parking is allowed could  be enclosed with the invitation.
