Birthplace of the author of Don Quixote

The building recreates the atmosphere in which one of the most important writers of universal literature grew up. It is located in the historic centre of Alcalá de Henares, which has the UNESCO World Heritage designation.

This was where Miguel de Cervantes, Saavedra, the author of the timeless novel 'Don Quixote', was born and spent his childhood. The period atmosphere of the house's interior takes visitors back in time to the 16th and 17th centuries. The lower floor was the scene for the family's day-to-day life and was divided into a work room, kitchen, dining room, ladies' room and the surgeon's office –the profession of Cervantes' father. The upper floor was occupied by sitting rooms and bedrooms. It now houses an important collection of furniture, ceramics, and etchings and paintings from the period, as well as an important library collection.
