Visits for getting to know the figure of Cervantes, master of Spanish literature

It is not an exaggeration to say that Miguel de Cervantes is the most famous Spanish author of all times and that his main work, Don Quixote, has been considered the top modern novel amongst world literature and the best work of fiction in the history of humanity. Quite a calling card.Here are a series of plans that we suggest for discovering more about this novelist, poet and playwright in a pleasant and entertaining way. If you click below, you will find instructions on how to follow the Route of Quixote in seven days, on the Route of the Windmills in the area of Toledo (did you know that Don Quixote mistook them for giants?) and information on events relating to Cervantes. Will you take part in the Quixote madness? 


DON QUIXOTE DESTINATIONS

If you're coming to Spain, why not come to a city related to Quixote? There are lots of towns that can be associated with this work and, in fact, Castilla-La Mancha suggests a route that is 2,500 kilometres long, goes through 148 towns and has been declared a European Cultural Route by the Council of Europe. You can locate and find information about some of the cities associated with Quixote and Cervantes on the following map. Scenes from the novel are set in some of them and others form part of the above route. You can expect expansive landscapes that are typical in La Mancha, where the horizon fades into the distance. Enjoy them.
