THE LITERARY MADRID + ALCALÁ DE HENARES: A CONVERSATION WITH CERVANTES
“Enjoy a visit to the places that witnessed the creation of a great deal of literary talent.”
The history of this area in Madrid has been written by means of prose and poetry, the best dramas written during the Spanish Golden Age. Madrid’s idiosynchrasy blends the purest tradition with modernity.
Alcalá de Henares, declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1998, offers a charming world where we can come across some of the literary characters made up by Cervantes’ imagination.
