Synopsis

Based on the best-selling novels by award winning Spanish novelist Arturo-Perez Reverte, we relive the times of the Spanish Empire and court life where it crosses its paths with the life of a common man. A dazzling look at the conspiracies and romances at the Spanish court of the outgoing Golden Age, through the eyes of the masterful swordsman and street-wise survivor Diego Alatriste and his 14-year old page, Iñigo de Balboa.

In stark contrast to the aloof but treacherous life at court, we discover the life of the streets of Madrid: raw, and dirty, a constant fight for survival or the next handout from a nobleman with half a heart. For King Philip’s wars against the secessionist, Northern provinces have been costly. However, it is precisely in these wars that Diego Alatriste has learned his craft: surviving against all odds with the use of his wit and sword.
