With a visit to the residence-museum where Cervantès was born, you'll be able to admire a perfect example of Castilian architecture of the 16th century. Miguel de Cervantès was born here in 1547. It was restored in 1956, based on the writer's father's house, and is an elegant reproduction of the 16th century home of a wealthy family. The house's several outbuildings, centred around a central patio, are furnished with antiques and numerous domestic items in order to create an authentic picture of daily life in those times. There is a work room, a kitchen, a dining room, a boudoir, a lounge, etc., which have all kept their original style, displaying furniture that is typical of a bourgeois 16th century house. The museum also has one of the best collections of Don Quixote editions in several languages and the entire works of Cervantès.
