Spain has a great literary history, and writers like Cervantes, García Lorca, Quevedo, Lope de Vega or Calderó have all played a major part. But one stands out for his international fame: Miguel de Cervantes. He is the author of Don Quijote de la Mancha.

Follow our private, certified guide as he/she takes you through the narrow streets of the “barrio de las letras“, the literary neighborhood. From the Cervantes statue to the Royal Palace, you will discover the highlights and off-the-beaten places of the city center, where Cervantes and all the other great writers once lived and worked.

Our guide will make sure that the kids will remain engaged and entertained by mentioning interesting fun facts and pointing out noteworthy elements along the way. And to make it extra interesting for the children, they will participate in an orientation game! Will they find their way to the Royal Palace?

Both fun and educative, our In The Footsteps of the Spanish Writers is the perfect way to discover the heart of the city center and enjoy many of its highlights and best kept secrets.
