It has been confirmed, albeit without scientific approval, that the human remains found in the Convent of Las Trinitarias in Madrid may have been those of Miguel de Cervantes, the famous author of El Quijote whose second part is 400 years old this year. We know where he died, in the street that bears his name, at number 2, in Madrid, and also where he was born, in Alcalá de Henares in 1547, although the exact place is still unclear.
However, in his hometown is the house where, after many studies, it is believed that the so-called Prince of Wit was born in. Entrance is free and the visit allows you to discover a classic Castilian house from the 16th century, with the added bonus of imagining Cervantes there running around it. It opens from Tuesday to Sunday, from 10.00am until 6.00pm, with last entry at 5.30pm. Information and bookings number: +32 918 899 654.
