About the tour

Come with us and explore one of the neighborhoods with has homed the most artistic and literary geniuses in world history on our Free Tour of Madrid’s Art’s Quarter. A neighborhood in which since the distant 16th century all the great names of Spanish literature have lived, leaving their mark in some way or another.

Learn about the amazing life story of Miguel de Cervantes, the author of the second most translated book in the world after the Bible: “Don Quixote”. Hear how he fought with true bravery in the famous battle of Lepanto and lost his right arm, his writing arm, and how despite him writing several very successful books during his lifetime he sadly died a very poor man. Be astonished by the great rivalry he had with Lope de Vega, the most successful writer of that time who died rich - but knew that he was the lesser writer and that eternity would put them both where they belonged.
