The World Heritage City Alcalá de Henares, in Madrid, is paying tribute to its most illustrious figure: Miguel de Cervantes, the author of "The Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote of La Mancha".

Cervantes Week takes place around the writer's baptism date (9 October 1547) and includes all kinds of events, lectures, theatrical performances, concerts, etc. Two of the highlights are the Cervantes Gastronomic Event and the Quixote Market. The former attracts the participation of restaurants in the city, which offer menus inspired by the cuisine mentioned in "Don Quixote". Meanwhile, the latter event is held at the heart of the historic quarter and represents a typical market from the 16th and 17th centuries (Spain's Golden Age).
