Description

Tradition has it that this house belonged to Doña Ana Martínez Zarco de Morales, identified as Dulcinea in the novel Don Quixote. The museum is designed to recreate a 16th-century La Mancha farmhouse, with furnishings, rooms and utensils typical of this period. It contains numerous items of great ethnological value, which were used on a daily basis in the traditional rural lifestyle: ceramics, basketwork, iron and copper kitchenware, a wine cellar, a mill, farming tools and horse tack, equipment for making cheese, an orchard, etc. The courtyard houses a cart and a wagon, as well as one of the biggest olive oil presses in the province of Toledo, with a beam measuring over 15 metres long.
