Literary Landmarks: Miguel de Cervantes Birthplace

TheMount The Cervantes Birthplace Museum is in the building where, scholars tell us, the writer was born. It has been restored to recreate various aspects of a household during the 16th and 17th centuries providing visitors with a sense of the former residents as they went about their daily lives. The house is situated in the old quarter of Alcala de Henares.

For more information click here: Cervantes Birthplace Museum, or click here for books by Cervantes and here for Spanish Literature.
