Cervantes House-Museum

In the city of Valladolid, in a set of four houses built in 1601. Cervantes rented one of them when he arrived in the city in 1604. The six rooms of the museum reveal much of the way of life of the period, the decoration and customs, and the social and political context of the writer’s life. See more information.

Cervantes Birthplace House-Museum

The house where Miguel de Cervantes was born and spent his early childhood is in the historic centre of Alcalá de Henares. The interior recreates the atmosphere and setting of the 16th and 17th centuries through the furniture, ceramics, engravings, and other objects from the period. See more information.
